School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Through rhyming text, Kane explores the day-to-day activities and building relationship between a girl and her kitten. The book touches on kitten habits such as grooming, snoozing, and exploring. However, as the nameless narrator takes readers through the story, she focuses on one task at a time, and the text becomes rather monotonous. There is no real climax or plot building here, and many children will lose interest by the middle. The illustrations, done in pencil, watercolor, and colored pencil, are reminiscent of 1990s picture books that have long since lost their shine and are not striking enough to combat the lackluster elements of the story. An additional purchase at best.-Ashley Prior, Lincoln Public Library, RI (c) Copyright 2012. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
