The Stinky Kitten – Kids Story with a Moral

Sample Text from The Stinky Kitten

In the barn on a farm in Wisconsin there lived a momma cat and her six little kittens. There were three boy kittens and three girl kittens. They lived in a corner of the barn in a nice box filled with straw. They were all very happy little kittens.

Five of the kittens spent most of their time playing in the straw near their box. They played kitten games like pounce and jump and chase. But the other kitten was a very curious and friendly little girl kitten. She loved to explore the barn and the farm. She already knew most of the other farm animals.

About the Author:

Jim lives in Missouri with his wife Merry and their cat Little Bit, where they have an antique shop.  With Merry’s help Jim has written 11 stories for children and cat lovers of all ages.  Most of the stories are about kittens but there is one about an adventurous baby bear, one about a curious frog and one about the history of rabbits and why they look the way they do now.  There is also a photo/caption book about two of our cats.

Several of the stories have been published but not widely distributed. The publisher has gone out of business so we are making the stories available free for children to read and hopefully enjoy.

Look out for kitten stories and more from Jim on Free Kids Books soon.

Children’s stories about cats:

Michael A. Jones

A non fiction book all about cats, big and small, including review questions and a writing exercise at the end. This is a well presented and well written creative commons addition from Open Equal Free, categorised by OEF as Level 4.



Susha Golomb

Every kid wishes for magic, but not Miriam Mermelstein, for her magic sucks. She firmly believes her parents fairy stories are just that, and she’s too old to be told stories. She wished for something real, what she thought was missing, but what she got was far more than she expected.



Anushka Ravishankar and Priya Kuriyan

 A classic variation of “the dog ate my homework” for cat lovers, perfect for getting children to read who hate homework. Another great creative commons book from Pratham / Storyweaver.


Illustrated by Karen Lilje, Written by Nicola Rijsdijk, Designed by Sam Scarborough

A short and very sweet, delightfully illustrated story about an independent cat. Another great creative commons book from BookDash.

The few words and large text size with repetition makes is very suitable for building confidence and keeping attention spans with early readers.
