Mittens has no one to play with so when he hears a bark, he goes to investigate by digging a whole beneath the fence separating his yard from the next. This very beginning reader may appeal to Biscuit readers who like cats. The story and words are simple, with animal sounds and some repetition throughout. Excitement is added through actions and exclamation points. This would be book to use in helping students read with fluency and expression. There are several other books with Mittens that should appeal to some children’s love for series and recurring characters.
