Trio The Tale of a Three-Legged Cat is another beautifully illustrated book in the Wood Cut art style of Andrea Wisnewski.

Meet Trio, the runt of the litter, born with only three legs, but very much the little cat that could. He lives his life as any other kitten would: pouncing, sneaking, and jumping like any other feline. Trio especially loves playing with the eleven chickens that share the garage and garden, and he is game to try all their activities: digging up bugs, rolling in the dust, and even caring for eggs.

The latter requires real effort, especially making it up into the nesting box, but once he figures it out he returns to it faithfully every day. And his persistence pays off. One day, an egg starts hatching beneath him. Little does he know, the chick that pops out will be his best friend. 

This is a story about diversity, overcoming obstacles, and acceptance. It is a story children will love--and a natural conversation starter with your child about differences.
