Piccolo shows boys and girls about sharing their strength with those who are smaller, younger, or weaker. Piccolo leads a life full of adventure and possibilities. And then two homeless kittens decide to adopt the free-spirited Piccolo. "I`m not a Papa cat," objects Piccolo. "I'm a tomcat." Children will delight in seeing how the kittens help Piccolo discover his own tender heart and a new kind of adventure. And Illustrator Itoko Maeno's watercolor depictions of the canals, markets, byways, boats, and bridges of Venice will delight children. With the Papa Piccolo teaching guide, your students will be saying "Hello" and "Goodbye" and more — in Italian! They will also be singing Piccolo's lullaby, creating cat masks to look like their favorite felines, and pondering how the Venetians keep the canal water out of their houses.

Papa Piccolo will help you:

  • Promote a sense of responsibility for others
  • Explore the many different kinds of families
  • Introduce the Italian language and information about Venice
