Kitten and Butterfly want to be friends, but what games can they play together? Kitten can’t fly and Butterfly can’t chase his tail! Together, they find a way. The first book in the Kitten and Friends series, Kitten & Butterfly is a story of friendship and acceptance. You and your little ones will love snuggling up with the cutest, friendliest, sweetest, kitty in the whole wide world!

Kitten & Butterfly is a story that helps you talk to your child about friendship, kindness, and accepting others who may look or live differently. But, it does so in a fun, “non-preachy” way. Children adore the story and the illustrations by Tekla Huszár.

See the Kitten & Butterfly Book trailer on YouTube to learn more:

Your child will learn something about each creature featured in a “Kitten and Friends” story. Like the fact that snakes can swim (Kitten & Snake) and Koi like to eat algae (Kitten & Koi). Also, the print version of every book includes a free coloring book inside!

A message from the author, Aviva Gittle:

“The Kitten and Friends series will help you teach your child friendship skills, manners and etiquette in a fun and engaging way. Each book ends with a Moral of the Story that reinforces the message of getting along with others who may look and live differently.

Meet Kitten & Butterfly illustrator Tekla Huszár!

Hi, my name is Tekla Huszár, I’m from Hungary. As an artist, I sculpt, paint, and illustrate stories. I have been drawing characters based on Indian tales and legends since I was a child. Harmony, colorful nature, animals, friendship and humor have always captivated me. Not to speak about curious kittens!

Illustrating children’s books is my favorite thing to do. Being a mother, I really enjoy reading
stories of every kind, immersing myself in the secret realm of a child’s limitless magination. I find great joy in creating the characters for the stories I’m asked to illustrate. Using my imagination to make them appear to others is such a pleasure. This is why I have loved bringing Kitten and all of his friends to life.

Getting to know Kitten and all his friends – Butterfly, Squirrel, Monkey and many more – has been so much fun! I know that you, too, will enjoy getting to know Kitten and Friends.
