Perry, Timothy T. Kitty Learns About Writing (Published in 2022 by Timothy T. Perry). This is a short, easy-to-read children’s book that features a stuffed animal named Kitty writing in a variety of settings. He looks at drawings on the wall of a cave, writes with different types of pens and pencils, checks out various kinds of typewriters, and even produces a story on a computer, among various other writing utensils and materials. Author Timothy Perry says that while created primarily for beginning readers, it can be used by anyone who wants to learn/teach about the history of written communication – including middle school and high school English and language arts teachers.
Kitty Learns About Writing would make a great resource to introduce primary grade students in a homeschool setting to the concept of writing. Timothy T. Perry received a Ph.D. in economics from the University of Mississippi, and has taught on the university level both economics and statistics classes as well as computer information systems classes until his retirement in 1999. He wrote the original versions of the first four Kitty books, of which there are now some 37, for his granddaughter.
