Lost and Found Cat by Doug Kuntz & Amy Shrodes


Originally published in: 2017

What it’s about: A touching picture book about one refugee family’s experience fleeing their home, and the even more unbelievable story of the cat they took with them.

What made me pick it up: It was on a list of children’s books about refugees and as a cat person it piqued my interest so I placed it on hold.

My favorite things: This book beautifully illustrates the hardships that face many families fleeing areas of the world like Syria. I may have been having an emotional day, but it brought me to tears how much something so universal as the love of a pet helped bring people together across countries to reunite this pet with his family.

Who it’s great for: Young readers who want to learn more about refugees. Cat lovers. Those who want a perfect example of how much good there is in the world.
