Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2—Using the same oversize format as Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! (Walker, 2005), Meyers and Walker cheerfully convey the playful spirit of kittens. The merrily rhyming text describes the animals exploring their world first as newborns, "Pouncing, bouncing, mewing...Busy, up-and-doing…." As they adjust to their new homes, they are "Chasing toys that skip and skitter,/Trying out their kitty litter." Growing older and bolder, the kittens are seen "Climbing curtains, shredding chairs,/Ganging up on teddy bears." Soft, muted colors give the pictures of tabbies, calicos, Siamese, and other domestic felines a warm and fuzzy feeling. Their expressive faces convey their sense of play, adventure, and curiosity as they hide in paper sacks, chase birds and mice, run atop a fence, jump from the washing machine into a laundry basket full of clothes, and cuddle with children. Youngsters will enjoy listening to the lively rhyme and shouting out the refrain, "Here and there and everywhere,/Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!" They will also enjoy poring over the cozy illustrations of the pets acting in ways that are very familiar to anyone who has ever enjoyed the company of a cat.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

From Booklist

Like the small, irrepressible canines in Puppies! Puppies! Puppies! (2006) by the same author-illustrator team, the curious, fuzzy charmers in this oversize picture book will tug at the hearts of children and adults alike. Once again, there's no real story--just a collection of appealing scenes in which kittens--busy, bouncy, and bold--explore their surroundings. Cheerful rhymes, with the title used as a satisfying refrain, are expanded on by Walker's acrylic artwork in soft-toned, thickly applied colors that have the look of sunny chalks. Though minimally detailed and simply shaped, the curious kitties leap and jump gleefully across spacious white backgrounds, their agile movements and curious expressions a comical reflection of the real thing.

The text is as playful as a room full of kittens and the artwork will tug at your heart.

I bought this book since we took it out from our local library and when it was time to be returned, my daughter was so upset!!

Also highly recommended is Meyer's previous children's picturebook, "Puppies! Puppies! Puppies!"

My daughter kept checking this book out of the library over and over again. She had it checked out so frequently that I don't think any other children had a chance to look at it! I figured it was a good investment to add it to her home library collection. I ordered it close to Christmas last year and had the shipping expedited. It arrived within the shipping window and in perfect condition. My daughter was SO excited when she opened this present!

I bought this book since we took it out from our local library and when it was time to be returned, my daughter was so upset!! We read it nearly every night and know all the words by heart!! It is a wonderful little book with wonderful illustrations and words, and describes the mischief kittens get into to a "T"!! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read to their kids!!

Format: Hardcover
The illustrations in this book are enough to earn it five stars. My two year olds love the sing-songy text, and we can do so many things with the kittens (counting, finding body parts, etc.), that this book can be read over and over again. And the ending is always a suprise!
