Once upon a time, in an igloo at the top of the world, there thrived a village of magical felines called The AtCats!
The AtCats Save Christmas is an engaging story enjoyable both to adults and to young children as a bedtime reading from parents. The story follows the escapades of the AtCats and their "helpers," the Ice Mice, as they save both Christmas for the humans (and Catmas for themselves!) from the diabolical plans of a former fallen AtCat named Phat Cat and his minions, the Calamity Cats. In this adventure, they even get a little help from a legendary band of gentle giant Saint Bernards! Each magical animal character has his own emoticon (or "e-cat-icon") that identifies his dialogue. The main character, Arctic, looks like this: ___,,,^.@.^,,,___
Some e-cat-icons are easy for children to learn to create with simple text characters. Others become increasingly more challenging and offer an opportunity to encourage self-exploration and learning! There are numerous such opportunities hidden in the story for teachable moments as you follow along with these charming and colorful characters. Please enjoy! :)
