It's that time of year when children love to hear Christmas stories and what fun it is reading to them. I always enjoyed them as a kid, and I still do! This holiday season I was excited to get the chance to add The Christmas Cats Fear for the Deer to my Christmas book collection.

The Christmas Cats Fear for the Deer is written by Constance Corcoran Wilson with Art by Gary McCluskey. and is a Seuss-ical tale for young children (4th in the series) which builds upon the morals of the first three Christmas Cats books (The Christmas Cats in Silly Hats, The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats and The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats).

What can be done to save the deer in Scott County Park? They've been nibbling bark on trees and the hunters might have to take care of the problem. The Christmas Cats must save the day and find them a new place to live. What will they do to save the deer? They come up with a creative plan!

I really enjoyed this book! This is a very cute Christmas story with wonderful illustrations. The last two pages of the book have fun activities for the little ones to enjoy. This book is great for young child, they will love it! This is definitely a great addition to my Christmas books. I’m sure your kids will love this book as much as we did!

About Constance Corcoran Wilson:

Connie has published many works representing a variety
of genres. Wilson’s first book (1989), published by
Performance Learning Systems, Inc. of Emerson, New Jersey, Training the Teacher As A Champion, put forth the
teaching techniques and principles taught by the nation’s
largest teacher training firm. Written by Wilson in collaboration
with PLS founder Joseph Hasenstaab, the book gives an insight
into the effective teaching practices of successful teachers, those techniques included in that organization’s Project T.E.A.C.H. (Teacher Effectiveness and Classroom Handling). Connie
taught at the elementary level for 20 years, taught writing at
6 IA/IL colleges, and founded the second Sylvan Learning
Center in the state of Iowa in 1986.

Since then, Connie has published 30 titles in a variety of genres, with the Christmas Cats series written with and for her now-six-year-old granddaughters, Ava and Elise. (Illustrations by Gary McCluskey) now entering its fourth installment. The Christmas Cats in Silly Hats began the four-book series and the cats help other animals in distress while wearing a delightful series of silly hats. The second book in the series, The Christmas Cats Chase Christmas Rats, was a plea for all to remain unprejudiced ("Do not judge others without knowing, or prejudice you will be showing") and the third book, The Christmas Cats Encounter Bats, stressed the need to honor all life as sacred. This year's book , The Christmas Cats Fear for the Deer, encourages helping others and also strikes a blow for individuals who some might consider handicapped, but who can succeed and excel if simple accommodations are made for them.
