Trio: The Tale of a Three-Legged Cat
"Writing with tenderness and understated humor, Wisnewski portrays disabilities as a simple fact of life-the obstacles that Trio surmounts are less about physical limitation than about learning how to use his body to get where he wants to be."-Publishers Weekly
One of the Best Children's Picture Books of the Year-Kirkus Reviews
Meet Trio, the runt of the litter, born with only three legs, but very much the little cat that could. He lives his life as any other kitten would: pouncing, sneaking, and jumping like any other feline. Trio especially loves playing with the eleven chickens that share the garage and garden, and he is game to try all their activities: digging up bugs, rolling in the dust, and even caring for eggs. The latter requires real effort, especially making it up into the nesting box, but once he figures it out he returns to it faithfully every day. And his persistence pays off. One day, an egg starts hatching beneath him. Little does he know, the chick that pops out will be his best friend.
This is a story about diversity, overcoming obstacles, and acceptance. It is a story children will love-and a natural conversation starter with your child about differences.
