Jamaica’s friend Kristin cannot keep her new kitten and hopes that Jamaica will be able to give her a good home. There’s one problem—Jamaica’s brother Ossie is allergic to cats. She wants to keep the kitten, but she also wants her brother to be healthy. In the end Jamaica and Kristin realize they should be thankful for everything they already have.
Juanita Havill s down-to-earth storytelling, complemented by Anne Sibley O Brien s warm watercolors, once again bring the inner lives of children to life and show there is a lot to be thankful for."
