Jackson loves his blanket more than anything in the world. He’s had it since he was born, and he brings it everywhere - to grandma’s house, on vacation, to the doctor’s office. His parents tell him he’s too big to be carrying his blanket with him all the time, but he’s just not ready to put it away! One day, when he finds a cold, lonely little kitten in the snow, Jackson realizes that sharing his blanket might be more important than keeping it all to himself.
From Nancy Cote: “As Jackson discovers, it’s so easy to make the world a better place. Wrap your love around a homeless pet. Support your local animal shelter!”
“The streamlined text and realistic watercolor illustrations come together to show how a boy grows up just a bit when the time is right. A great addition to most collections.” - School Library Journal
“Cote's functional illustrations, in watercolor-pencil and gouache, are pleasant, but the real meat is in the text. With a non-preachy and empowering ending, this story will certainly ring true to those ready (or not quite) to give up their loveys.” - Kirkus
