Kitten’s Winter (Kitten)

Join Kitten as she explores the lively winter wonderland just outside her front door. As she struggles to make her way home, she encounters some animals that are braving the blustery winter day while others are hidden nearby sleeping soundly. A beautifully illustrated book with simple rhyming text that makes it the perfect read-aloud. Book Four in the series.

Description

Winter comes to Kitten's world, and the little calico leaves her cozy home for an afternoon of exploration and discovery. Kitten learns that even on a frosty day, animal life flourishes: a squirrel forages, an otter goes fishing and a woodpecker taps the side of a bare-limbed tree. At the same time, readers discover that for many animals, winter is a time of rest. Softly, Kitten treads past a burrowing turtle, a napping beaver and a hibernating bear. Told in rhyming couplets, Kitten's Winter is a perfect introduction to animal behavior and habitats. And its sumptuous, mixed-media illustrations make it ideal for beginning and pre-readers, who will delight in spotting all the different details of the season.

Editorial Review

The large, clean pictures make this small square book easy to share with a group, though children will surely enjoy looking at the small details up close.—School Library Journal
