    1. I will admit to being a tiny bit biased on this one since I read it to my son right after we adopted three abandoned kittens, including an orange one we named Ginger. This is sweet and cute and made me a little misty.

    2. This is a prequel to the book Ginger, a book I’d already read.This story about a stray cat who first finds food, then meets a little girl who names him, and then is adopted into a home with the little girl had me near tears. It’s a lovely story. The only downside is that if you read it to young children, they’re likely to get it into their heads to adopt a cat in need. Depending on circumstances, having that request by a family member might be a big plus.The illustrations are wonderful, an [...]

    3. In this heartwarming prequel, Ginger finds a home! This is a story about one small and poor cat, Ginger, who finds a home because of a lovely girl. She offers Ginger food and thus, Ginger comes back, eventually becoming a permanent pet for the girl. I love how the text take up almost the entire page, and that the only illustrations presented are of Ginger. They are small and simple and the pages are not filled with a lot of detail, rather they are filled with text. Any animal lover can relate to [...]

    4. if only Charlotte Voakes knew what this book meant to my lowest students. we struggled through the first book at the first of the year. I got this one at Christmas. They struggled far less with this one. This series is excellent for kids making the jump from short vowel words to long vowel and multi-syllable words. The story had a surprise in the middle and a sigh inducing happy ending. I will be happy to read this book with them again and again.

    5. There isn't a lot to this story. Ginger is a homeless cat, and a little girl wins him over with love and patience. However, the preschoolers I read it to were captivated, and worried for Ginger, and on the edge of their little seats waiting to see what would happen. I wasn't in love with the story, it's pretty simple, but the kids really responded. I think it also had a good side lesson about being kind to animals.

    6. An odd book that didn't quite capture my interest. A stray ginger cat lives in a patch of weeds at the bottom of the garden. A little girl finds him and offers him food. Like any sensible cat he takes to the good life.

    7. Beautifully illustrated story about a cat who gets adopted by a little girl (sorry about the spoiler) suitable for anyone who loves cats as it is a sweet story and the pictures are quite lovely. Simple, happy and pretty: just exactly what's required of a young child's picture story book.

    8. This was my first Voake book and I like it the first time I read it. But I loved it more each time I read it.It is a simple story with simple text and illustrations, but it captures the love, patience and nurturing that can reside in children.

    9. This is really a 3.5, but since I'm a cat lover and can identify with the cat and the little girl in this story, and since the illustrations are cute, I'm giving it the 4. I will look for the other Ginger books.

    10. Sweet. We've only had this book for a few days but have read it many times. Simple words, simple pictures, compassionate tale.

    11. A wonderful children's story about a stray cat named Ginger, who finds her forever home with a kind, young girl.

    12. A fun story of a homeless cat who finds a forever place with a family. It's a children's story, but also a true story. Fun illustrations.

    13. Love the illustrations. Very sensitive story about a stray cat finding a home with a little girl.

    14. A stay cat finds a home with a girl who feeds him. Not an original storyline, but still charmingly told, and with nice illustrations.
