Sam: The Cat Without A Tail by Gloria Lintermans

As he discovers that he is indeed different from everyone around him, he learns and helps to teach the importance and beauty of diversity and self-worth.
Cold Coffee 5 Star Review: Sam: The Cat Without A Tail by Gloria Lintermans touched my heart. As a mother and grand-mother I think all parents and grand-parents should take the message in this book to heart and share this delightful, well written story with children of all ages.
Sam the cat, is a Manx kitten, which means he has a soft, white, cotton puff for a tail. It isn’t long before he becomes self-conscious that his tail is different from the tails of the cats coming into his yard.
Thinking that he is not welcome to curl up under the tree with his new friends, Sam retreats into isolation.
One day Sam finds out how smart, special and talented he really is and his despair turns to self-acceptance and the ability to join in on the activities around him.
The illustrations by Kristina Tosicare are remarkable. The truth within the story needs to be shared with all children. Any and all attempts to boost the self-esteem of children around us, is our adult responsibility.
Author Gloria Lintermans gives some much-needed advice for parents and grand-parents at the end of this book. I encourage you to pick this book up in print or e-book and share it with the children around you. It is a story for all times.
I purchased Sam: The Cat Without A Tail so I can share its message with my grand-children. I hope Author Gloria Lintermans writes more books to help children and educate the adults around them. My review posted on April 18, 2019.

Step and blended families have a unique dynamic with which couples must cope, along with all the other normal challenges of life and marriage. See how these families differ in up to sixty structural and dynamic ways from typical intact biological families-including consisting of two co-parenting homes and ex-spouses-and learn how to successfully recognize and manage these challenges. For most couples, trying to build a successful remarriage can mysteriously bring out their deepest personal fears, longings, shames, and hopes.
The key to not only survival, but also living this journey well, begins with discovering opportunities to heal and to succeed; it is not about blame or badness. With the right preparation and resources, a multi-home step or blended family can be a stable and solid foundation for co-parents and children.
