Calvin the dog’s world is rocked when Gloria, the cat, is brought home home by his owners. Gloria is eating out his bowl, taking over the house and yard and no one is paying Calvin any attention! Will the two ever put aside their differences and become friends?
For anyone who experiences the addition of a new family member, I Don’t Like Gloria is the perfect way to give them a voice. The text is simple enough for children to read over and over and parents will enjoy sharing this book with their children. The illustrations are wonderful; Calvin’s increasing frustration with Gloria is brilliantly captured and the pictures extend the simple text.
Below I share the book with you. If you like what you’ve seen, please check out Gloria at your local library.
Thank you to Abbe for her video and editing.
