A Slow Start with Sagwa

My four year old son was really excited about reading Sagwa, the Chinese Siamese Cat by Amy Tan.  The artistry on the cover of the book was extremely detailed and enticing.  The first page or two of the story was a little bit slow in advancing toward a plot, so I was disappointed at first.  We continued reading and we both became more involved in the story.  Sagwa, the main character cat, is a little mischievous, which added some humor.  My little one gave a few strong belly chuckles as the little kitten tumbled into the ink pot.  The story included some higher level vocabulary words (persistent, scroll, and magistrate).  Even though it did not start strong, Sagwa the Chinese Siamese Cat was enjoyable and had a very happy ending.
