Little Cat needed just one good friend, and the Dog and the Little Cat were the very best of friends. Little Cat noticed the fun the Dog and Mr. Fuzzby were having without her and she felt the Dog wanted more than one friend. It bothered Little Cat watching them playing together. Though Little Cat tried to get the Dog's attention, he was busy with Mr. Fuzzby. After playing, they had a nap together and Little Cat was feeling left out. She wondered why the Dog thought Mr. Fuzzby was his best friend, and she decided to find out when the Dog napped. Mr. Fuzzby had no blinkity blinks, glittery gears, buzzity buttons, and anything magical and Little Cat was astonished, wondering why a stuffed toy would be the Dog's best friend. Will she be able to figure that out and will Little Cat be able to become Mr. Fuzzby's friend?

Little Cat Feels Left Out by Dori Durbin is an adorably charming story about friendship, kindness, sharing, caring, empathy, and understanding others. The wonderful illustrations by the author make the book captivating and the characters real and relatable. Children will be able to connect with the characters of the Dog, Little Cat, and Mr. Fuzzby easily. The messages conveyed through the story are positive and uplifting and will encourage children to create and maintain their friendships nicely. It is a perfect storybook to use at home and in classrooms for read-aloud and storytelling sessions to teach children valuable lessons in an interesting way.
