A Look Inside I See Kitty
From School Library Journal
PreS–Chloe, dressed in red and white polka dots and an ever-present hair bow, loves everything about cats: their sweet purrs, little noses, and fluffy fur. She asks for a kitten and, though her mother's response is a gentle “Not today, Chloe,” the child is not discouraged. Watching kittens play in a pet store window, she silently chooses her favorite and begins to see Kitty everywhere–hidden in the clouds, in sculpted shrubbery, in the bubbles in her bath. Large color illustrations in simple, rounded shapes outlined in black invite children in and present seek-and-find entertainment, while the short text with speech bubbles is the perfect length for the very young. Colorful endpapers filled with myriad small vignettes of kittens at play or rest are a fitting introduction and conclusion to the happy story. That the child receives the same kitten that greeted her at the pet store makes for a satisfying tale.–Maryann H. Owen, Children's Literature Specialist, Mt. Pleasant, WIα(c) Copyright 2013.
