Product DescriptionClover Kitty does NOT want to go to kittygarten! Although she might like a friend to play with, kittygarten feels overwhelming for a sensory-sensitive kitty like Clover. And when she arrives, it is exactly as she fears: her classroom is too loud, the lights are too bright, and everyone comes too close. So Clover throws a fit?and decides to quit kittygarten. But when a classmate comes to check on her, she begins to reconsider. Maybe it?s time for Clover to give kittygarten another chance.?Review?Young readers will identify with Clover?s feelings about starting school or any new adventure?The watercolor illustrations have soft, inviting colors.
