Review #14-- Mailbox Kitten Written by Manny Oaklee and illustrated by Patricia J. Westbrook
This story starts out describing, a mailbox, a joyful mailbox that is the symbol of country living, freedom, and the unknown. It's all about the country living adventure, working on the land and living free. Then there are the mail ladies, the ladies that deliver the mail and will be friends of the farm forever because of their friendly nature. The mailbox kitten came as a gift from the mail ladies, a lost kitten, not belonging to anyone they know, so it was given to Bubba the little boy at Heart of Bottoms Up 2/3 Acre. They took in the kitten and gave it a good home and a good life. I won't give away the rest of the story, but there is a lot of love and God's will to create opportunity from this experience and adventure. In this story the love comes from Bubba caring for the kitten and Bubba's parents determination to find the kitten, for Bubba and the whole family to love. The kittens have brought the family much joy and adventure. This is a great story for young kids to realize the true meaning of caring, and that God will show us the way to love.
