Named A Baker's Dozen 2018: The 13 Best Books for Family Literacy

Chosen as one of the Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year (2017) by Kirkus Reviews

“Writing with tenderness and understated humor, Wisnewski portrays disabilities as a simple fact of life—the obstacles that Trio surmounts are less about physical limitation than about learning how to use his body to get where he wants to be.”—Publishers Weekly

Trio is a kitten who was born with three legs. He lives his life as any other kitten would. He loves to play with the chickens, even climbing into their nesting box and finding his new favorite place. One day as he lounges in the hay, an egg hatches beneath him, and he makes a new best friend. A story children will love—and a natural conversation starter with your child about differences. 

Lovely to look at, a pleasure to read aloud, and offering plenty of details to pore over, Trio’s story seems destined to become a favorite for many families. —Kirkus Reviews
