The Weather's Shitty, Kitty
A conversation-starter for kids about the use of certain words
by Dr. John F. Does

Children absorb information and language like little sponges, sometimes faster than they can handle and with no real understanding of what the words mean. But that doesn’t stop them from parroting our words back at us. So, what do we do when our cute little angels hear, or use, words that are inappropriate? Ideally, we talk to them about it, but it can be hard to know where to start. That’s where The Weather’s Shitty, Kitty ― the first in a series of “conversation starter” books ― comes in. When Little Kitty hears her father say a “bad word” after hitting his paw with a hammer, she is uncomfortable and doesn’t know what to think about it. Can a word actually be “good” or “bad”? Or is it just a word? Luckily, she feels safe talking to her parents about tricky subjects. Dr. Does warmly explores these interesting concepts though the eyes of an adorable family of kitties.

Children’s author John F. Does has developed a series of ‘healthy conversation-starters’ for young children on a range of sensitive social topics. Dr. Does holds an MBA from the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor, Ontario and a PhD from the University of the West of England, Bristol. He is an avid reader and a devotedly frustrated golfer. He lives on a few country acres near Plattsville, Ontario, Canada, with his wife, Annette, and daughters, Samantha and Olivia.. Other conversation-starter books, by Dr. John F. Does, available now or coming soon: Uncle Funky’s a Drunk, Skunk is a warm and loving way to help young children understand the issue of problem drinking by adults. Those Hens are Cliquey, Chickie is an action-packed look at youth cliques and bullying. That Salmon’s not so Dumb, Chum warmly explores dyslexia from the perspectives of children, parents and teachers. John F. Does is also the author of “A Play on Words”, a knee-slapping coffee table collection of puns, funny anecdotes, and hilarious misunderstandings that together make for a lively romp through the inherent vagaries of the English language.
