1st book: "Mr. Mittens' Magical Mittens": This book introduces Mr. Mittens, the playful tuxedo cat. The music CD plays as the child turns the pages and sings along. After the main story, there is a coloring book section which includes the same illustrations that came before, only in black & white so children can color them in.There is a hard copy music CD that can come with the book or use the optional "free download code". This book helps kids think about the things that make them special and how they can use these things to make the world a better place. It also helps kids see special things in the people they know. You can also get the plush toy cat that is the "look-alike kitty" for Mr. Mittens. Hear a sample of the music.

2nd book: "Mr Mittens 2: Dreams Come True!": Now that the child knows who Mr Mittens is, the reader finds out that his story started out at an animal shelter. It was here that Mittens would sing at night about his dream of a “forever home”. He meets a friend who sings along with him, but they can’t see each other because of the confines of their cages. When they are adopted they discover that they are a cat & a dog and they happily go to their new "forever home" together. This book helps kids think about the differences between people and how to appreciate people who are different from themselves. It also has the coloring book section, the sheet music and the new music CD. This book even has the new plush toy dog named "Buddy" that matches the dog in the book! Hear a sample of the duet between Buddy & Mr. Mittens: “Mr. Mittens 2: Dreams Come True!”

3rd Book: “How Mittens & Buddy ‘Saved' Christmas!” : The holidays have arrived and Santa’s elves & reindeer have come down with the flu. How will Santa get all the toys they made to all those children around the world this year? Mittens and Buddy come to the rescue in this poem reminiscent of “The Night Before Christmas” (written in the early 1800’s). This holiday book is like two books in one. In the first version of the poem Mr Mittens “saves the day” and in the second version Buddy “saves the day”. However, there are deeper lessons to be taught in this poem which is set to lively, toe tapping music. It brings up questions like “Who really ‘saved' Christmas? “ and "Do you ever feel too small to do anything ‘important’?”. Like the preceding 2 books, this book has the color illustrated poem, the sheet music for the song, several coloring sheets and the music CD. On this music CD are the Mr Mittens' version of “Saving Christmas", the Buddy's version of “Saving Christmas", and the instrumental version, too! You can hear each version here:
