Are you looking for a read aloud for grade 3 or 4? Katherine Applegate delivers another excellent option. Although this book deals with the serious topics of poverty and homelessness, Applegate is able to keep the tone light and heartfelt. Crenshaw – a large, imaginary cat – provides comfort and humour to both Jackson, the main character, and the reader, too. This is an enjoyable read about friendship and resiliency.
