Maya the cat does not look like other cats. She is different and she acts differently too. She needs a little bit of attention sometimes. She runs around like other cats and climbs on things. Maya likes to eat yummy treats and she likes to play with toys. She talks a lot and when she is tired of doing all that, she sleeps or cuddles with her family. Everyone thinks Maya is different but once you get to know her, she is really not different. She likes to be treated well and loved by everybody. Let's read the story to learn more about Maya the cat.
Meet Maya Cat: A story about acceptance by Lauren Beader is a delightful story about acceptance and will help readers accept everyone for what they are irrespective of their differences and abilities. Harrison Makofsky's illustrations are wonderful and they breathe life into the concept, Maya, and the story. Everyone wants inclusion, love, and acceptance in society and Maya's story will teach children to treat each other with love and kindness.
Meet Maya Cat is a good story for bedtime storytelling and read-aloud and storytelling sessions in classrooms and school libraries because it is the best way to show children how to treat others - the way they want to be treated. It is good for children to read stories like this to realize that sometimes people are different and it is important to give them the same love and respect that is given to others.
