Winston Knows should be on every child’s Kindle!
Kids love this book! It has great illustrations that are fun with lots of humor to illustrate the clever story. Young readers can grow into this book, pre-school age are attracted to the amazing illustrations and vibrant colors and then older readers actually ‘get’ the story about Winston the cat who has a nose for adventure. It is also a great story to read aloud with lots of ‘sound effects’ opportunities. Highly recommended.
