Naughty Chérie is the cutest kitten in the litter, but she certainly isn't the best-behaved one! She tries, but she can't seem to stay out of trouble. Sitting alone in the corner as punishment, she finds a small crack in the wall that leads to a place called Little Friends Kindercare. But after seeing the naughty behavior of the other baby animals in the kindercare, Little Chérie returns home a changed kitten. This lovable tale from Joyce Carol Oates and Mark Graham includes a valuable message that makes for a purrrfect bedtime story.
