About the Book
The shy little kitten stars in her first-ever Christmas adventure, and her second Step into Reading book!
Fans of the classic 1946 Little Golden Book The Shy Little Kitten (and its Step into Reading adaptation) will be thrilled to see Shy enjoying her first Christmas in this Step 1 Step into Reading book. Freshly illustrated in the style of the Little Golden Book, this sweet story about Shy and her siblings learning the meaning of Christmas is the perfect addition to the Step into Reading line.
Step 1 readers feature big type and easy words for children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading. Rhythmic text paired with picture clues help children decode the story.
