							A neighborhood cat observes the changes in German and Jewish families in Berlin during the period leading up to Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass. This cat's-eye view introduces the Holocaust to children in a gentle way that can open discussion of this period.

“This work provides a gentle overview and entry to discuss the start of the Holocaust with children.” - School Library Journal (audiobook)

"It is not easy to tell young kids the horrifying truth about the Holocaust, but this picture book is a good place to start." - Booklist

"... the message of terror and sadness that marks the beginning of the Holocaust is transmitted in a way that is both meaningful and comprehensible. An afterword provides historical context for the story... For all collections." - School Library Journal
