Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 1–Sophia, a tabby cat, has 16 kittens. Using different-colored collars for each one, the author introduces both colors and community helpers: "Teal kitten cures with Louann, the pediatrician" and "Chartreuse kitten directs with Celia, the crossing guard." After their busy days, the kittens are reunited with an anxious Sophia during a colorful party. Catalanotto's sepia-like pictures are highlighted with the color introduced. For example, the color tan appears in the grocery bag and in the clerk's uniform. "Rust" appears along the pipes that Tony the plumber is repairing as well as in his shirt. The kittens also have touches of color. The art has a lot of child appeal, as do the popular concepts, and the text is bold and easy to read. A book of high interest to teachers and children.–Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada

From Booklist

PreS-K. In Matthew A. B. C. (2002) and Daisy 1, 2, 3 2003), Catalanotto introduces kindly teacher Mrs. Tuttle, who devises clever alphabet and counting exercises to differentiate among her identical students. In this follow-up, Mrs. Tuttle is faced with a litter of indistinguishable kittens, and she uses colors to help her identify them, particularly after she sends them out to their new homes. Each spread shows a different kitten wearing a collar in a color that is often a fitting match to the profession of the kitten's owner: Rust Kitten lives with Tony the plumber, for example; Pink Kitten dances with Zoe the ballerina. Catalanotto offers a nice balance of gender roles in his lineup of pet owners: the basketball player, the pilot, and the package courier are women. Children will chortle over the felines' high jinks depicted in the appealing gray-toned paintings, which are accented with bright splashes of the featured hues. A satisfying, high-spirited way to review colors and introduce professions. Gillian Engberg

My son is 6 years old and recently heard Mr.Catalanotto speak at a book festival. He was inspired by him and ever since has been reading any book by him that he can get his hands on... this is by fair his favorite book. At first I wasn't going to check it out from the library because it looked like it might be a little young for him but I gave it a try anyway. Turns out I enjoyed it as much as he did. The illistrations are so funny. The first night we read it my son wanted to sleep with the book. Needless to say we have had to buy our own copy and I think from now on this is the book we'll buy for friends. You won't be disappointed.

My 3-year-old loves this book. I like it as well, as every time I read it I notice some new interesting detail. It introduces some unusual colors (chartreuse)and jobs you don't see in most books, but that kids would be familiar with(crossing guard). Great book.
