I love the message of this book! Warren's mother tells him he will be important in his own way, and he is. It's a great way to talk about differences and talents. Warren the cat is unqiue and heroic. Highly recommend this book for ages 6-8.

Little Honker's Winter Concert
Can a cat play music at a school concert?
Little Honker can and did. First he plays a duet and then the bells with the rest of the band. When the bells get loose, the kitty inside him takes over and the excitement begins as Little Honker chases them around the auditorium. Did Little Honker ruin the concert or make it the most memorable one ever?

Warren is back! How fun. I'm a Vet Tech and play the piano, so my son and I especially enjoyed Little Honker's desire for music. He has the perfect cat-titude.

A Little Honker Companion Resource Guide: Part 1
This companion guide for the popular Little Honker series allows your early reader to learn with Little Honker and his animal friends in a fun and interactive way.
Virginia K. White, a classroom teacher for 40 years, followed her dream after retirement and began writing books for young readers. Not only have her books received honors, but so has Virginia. She was Wyoming Teacher of the Year, was selected as a teacher with the most positive influence shaping tomorrow’s leaders, received the Principal’s Award for Excellence in Instruction, served as the English coordinator in two high schools, was a reader of Advanced Placement Exams, and taught Advanced Placement Institutes.
Her love of students and appreciation for unique personalities and learning styles inspired Virginia to individualize lessons to reach all students. Because all students do not learn in the same way, she believes it is important to recognize those differences early. Therefore, she has created a wide variety of activities for young learners in this book. Finding what works with each learner is important! It is the hope of the author that there will be activities that will not only meet the needs of a variety of learners, but that they will enjoy the adventures of Little Honker and his friends.
