Children need to know that they are not superior or inferior to anyone. They just are. And they are valuable and worthy. As parents, we must encourage them not to be perfect but to be the best version of themselves. Let's lead by example and build tolerance and embrace differences.

In this new timeless children's book, a cat moves into the neighborhood and Kitty Kat is afraid her best friends will be stolen away from her. The new cat has stripes and Kitty Kat doesn't. She thinks that's why her friends like the other cat better. So she sets out on a mission to get stripes, but what she gets in the end is so much more.
The story of Kitty Kat encourages children to focus less on body image and more on their own special skills and strengths. This book teaches children that they are worthy of love and respect, regardless of what they look like. This is the important lesson that Kitty Kat learns in the end: she is beautiful just as she is.
The author, Elka Peterson, knows all too well what it's like to be bullied for being different. She experienced it in school and thinks that it's terrible for a child to feel like an outcast. She believes that every child should feel loved and appreciated just as they are. She wrote the book not just for children to read, but for parents and teachers to use as tool to teach their children this important and invaluable lesson.
