Synopsis

There's a Cat in Our Class! is a kid-friendly exploration of diversity that teaches children the value of not only accepting but embracing the differences of others. When a new classmate arrives, Max, Rusty, Ginger, and Tanner assume she is a dog just like them. But Samantha is not a dog, which leads to lots of questions. Soon Samantha is celebrated for the cat she is—just in time for another new student! Includes a "Note to Readers," written by Dr. Gayle E. Pitman, the American Library Association's Stonewall Book Award winner for This Day in June.
