The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats
Book two, The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats, urges acceptance and advises against prejudice. “It’s best to be open and trusting and kind, and always to keep an open mind.” Learn to accept others in a non-judgemental, open-minded fashion.
Book #1 taught children aged 3 and up that it is best to try to get along with others in life.
Book #2, The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats, also has clever, colorful illustrations by award-winning artist Gary McCluskey, and a story from Constance (Corcoran) Wilson, veteran educator. The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats makes the case that we should judge others fairly based on real-life experience, not on stereotypes that might not be true. It is a plea for all to help others, keep an open mind and avoid prejudice.
