Friday the Scaredy Cat by Kara McMahon - ADVISABLE

McMahon, Kara Friday the Scaredy Cat Illustrated by Maddy McClellan Simon Spotlight, 2013. $16.99 EARLY READER  Content: G. 
Friday is a black cat who is scared of all the new changes he sees around his house.  The changes include a new pink bed, a pink bowl and a pink mouse.  Pretty soon Friday smells something new and hides in the closet and before long he sees what he thinks is a monster in his house, but he learns that it is his little sister.  He decides that he is not scared, but happy with the new addition to his life. 
This is a cute book about dealing with change.  The cat learns that things that may seem scary at first, can actually be fun.  I also think this is a great book for young readers, because it allows them to make inferences about what the scary items might mean. 
EL (K-3)-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
