PreS—It is spring on the farm, and Kitten is out exploring and visiting the new babies. The feline sees the bees on the flowers, the redwing blackbird by its nest, a chick, a duckling hatching, and more. At the end of a busy day, the cat returns to a house and settles down for a night of sweet dreams. The text and the mixed-media illustrations are at times inconsistent with what is described and portrayed, e.g., "Frog croaks,/Tadpole glistens" shows the pair, but the tadpole does not "glisten." A few pages later, "Pig oinks,/Piglet drinks." Directly below the text, Kitten is lapping milk from a bowl, while on the left-hand side of the spread a piglet is shown nursing. The illustrations are filled with delightful images and the brief text will appeal to the very young.—Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH
