The Cat Who Came Back for Christmas by Julia Romp

51-hrxya42bl

Originally published in: 2012

What it’s about: A boy with autism and his mom whose lives are changed after a stray cat joins their home.

What made me pick it up: It has a cute kitten on the cover. It had to do with Christmas. That was enough, but then I found it in the autism section and not the cat section and I was even more intrigued.

My favorite things: This story is so touching. A child who was lost inside was brought out by a cat and his mother’s determination. Animal stories get me sobbing every time. Animal and family stories doubly so. It will make you want to call your mom and thank her for everything she has ever done for you.

Who it’s great for: Families with members who have autism. Cat lovers. Anyone who enjoys stories about holiday hope.
