Genre: Children’s Fiction

Recommended Age Group: 4 and Up

Summary: Skippyjon Jones is a Siamese cat with a great imagination and a desire to be anything but what he is. His mother Mama Junebug Jones doesn’t like this at all and sends him to his room to think about being a cat. While in his room Skippyjon’s imagination once again gets away with him and takes him into his closet and to old Mexico where he pretends to be a Chihuahua. He has great adventures as a chihuahua and ends up saving the day but also causing a big mess.

Personal Notes: An enormously fun story and one of my favorite books to read aloud. It does have a bit of Spanish in it but that makes it more fun because you can really get into it and include the accents and everything. On the back of the book it recommends it to children ages 4 and up but I think my two year old does great with it. It really depends on the day. I wouldn’t think you had to wait until four to enjoy this book together.
