When a shy, little kitten named Harley joins the ‘Homestead Friends’ in the Ozark Mountains, she is overwhelmed. Sweet Harley realizes she has much to learn, and wonders if she will fit in. As part of the journey, Harley finds comfort in the kindness of the others and discovers beautiful colors and new life along the way.
The colors in the illustrations are bright and cheerful drawing you right into this Homestead life. Each animal is artfully described and illustrated; allowing great fun for even the youngest readers as they begin to identify the characters. Older readers will notice how each character builds upon the life and surroundings of wooded homestead life. This would be a wonderful addition to anyone’s collection, especially those who share homestead and/or Ozark dreams, or memories. It would be a fantastic unit study, or Five in a Row lesson for homeschooling or classroom use.
