Booklist Review

PreS. The special bond between young and old plays out sweetly in this happy picture book. Mom is away, and Grandpa Cat is staying with the kittens. Stanley, the youngest, avers that he'll take special care of Grandpa, and a trip to the park finds that Grandpa and Stanley have some things in common. Brother Rex kicks the soccer ball, and both of them miss it. Neither one is good at twirling the jump rope for sister Queenie. Nor can they jump as high as sister Flora asks. The three older kittens leave Grandpa and Stanley to their own devices. As both of them are too tired to do much, Stanley sings homage to Grandpa, and the two take a nap. When they wake up, everybody's ready for more fun. The well-played-out story is a good match for the thoughtful design and the cheerful artwork. Thick, cream-colored paper is the background for the kitties, who look like the cutest of stuffed animals. The action tumbles across spreads, and black-and-white family snapshots on the endpapers welcome children to the story inside. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Stanley, the adorable star of A Present for Mom (Candlewick, 2002), returns in this loving story about a feline family. Grandpa is visiting for the weekend, so when Mom leaves for work, he stays to look after the rather active kittens. The older siblings draft him into playing soccer, jumping rope, and bouncing on a large ball, but his strengths do not lie in these areas. After Grandpa sits down with a tired sigh, Stanley, the youngest, snuggles close and sings a soothing tune about his love for his grandfather. Before long, the whole group dozes off. Later, a newly refreshed Grandpa takes everyone to the playground. Complete with black-and-white family "photos" scattered across the endpapers, the exuberant cartoon illustrations work perfectly with the endearing text. A delightful choice for reading aloud or for family sharing.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
