This is a lovely story about friendship and self-acceptance. My kids (cat lovers all) laughed at the funny feline behaviors so well translated into illustration and storyline.

Sweet story about a cat whose normal routines are brightened as she adds some color to her life. Charming illustrations.

Ethel is a cat who is set in her ways. One day, Ethel goes for a roll on her favorite sidewalk square, only to get blue sidewalk chalk all over her white fur. What happens next is a hoot! This is a lovely story about changes and self-confidence, but it also offers lots of new vocabulary (namely shades of blue) and opportunities to talk about feelings. Share it in storytimes about Cats, Colors, or Feelings.

I love Ethel! The art is wonderful and full of great little details. Read this now and share with all you friends. I cannot wait to read more of Jennifer Black Reinhardt's books.

Blue Ethel is a delightful story about an old, fat, black and white cat that is very good at being an old, fat, black and white cat. Her usual stretch of sidewalk for rolling and napping is decorated one day with chalk and she discovers she is no longer black and white, but black and blue! Ethel finds that there are many different words for the color blue as well as more than one meaning. Will Ethel ever stop being blue? Read the book to find the answer and to add new words to your kiddo's vocabulary!
