Book Description

Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat, the day is almost done. Not yet, Mother, I still can see the sun. Kitty Cat should be getting ready for bed, but instead she’s playing peekaboo, imagining she’s in outer space, tickling her toes, and more. Will Kitty Cat make it to bed on time? Adorable pastel illustrations rendered in watercolor paints and colored pencil from Laura J. Bryant bring Kitty Cat so close you’ll want to reach out and hug her!

Editorial Reviews


Gr PreK-3 In this cheerful follow-up to Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat, Are You Waking Up? a rambunctious gray kitten has plenty of excuses for not getting ready for bed, despite Mother s persistence. When she inquires, Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat,/did you wash your face? bathtubbing Kitty Cat plays with a rocket ship and replies, Not yet, Mother,/I m in outer space. And when she asks if Kitty Cat has brushed her teeth, the pajama-clad Kitty hides under Mother s lounge chair, clawing at the fabric, Not yet, Mother/come look underneath! But story time and lullabies finally have Kitty Cat relenting, Okay, Mother,/I guess it s time for bed. Bryant depicts Kitty Cat and Mother s nightly rituals with soothing watercolor and colored pencils spreads, while Martin and Sampson s call-and-response verse is upbeat, even while the action simmers down as bedtime approaches. Those who similarly postpone the inevitable will relate to the feline s playful protest, and close-up images of Kitty Cat curled in a cozy pile of patterned blankets will have even adamant bedtime-naysayers stifling yawns. —PW January 24, 2011

PreS-Gr 1 A simple rhyming exchange alternates between parent and child as it playfully follows the usual bedtime routine and stall tactics. Mother is mostly heard, not seen, but shows infinite patience in getting her young one to bed. Kitty Cat moves from her energetic delays, I know, Mother,/Let s play peekaboo! to quiet agreement, Okay, Mother,/I guess it s time for bed. Adorable colored pencil and watercolor illustrations support the conversation and take Kitty from wide awake to sleeping sooo tight. The soft palette and simple details have the perfect calming effect. This bedtime choice is best shared with cuddles and be ready to start the day with the companion title, Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat, Are You Waking Up? (Marshall Cavendish, 2008). —School Library Journal, May, 2011

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Little Kitty Cat March 18, 2015
Do you have a ritual before you go to bed at night? Many children do, a couple of stories read by mom or dad, water, another trip to the bathroom. What do you like to read at night? Sometimes it is a chapter in a book and often it is a soothing book to help the little one drift off to sleep.

The authors, Bill Martin, and Michael Sampson, have written one of those books about kitty cat. Kitty cat has all sorts of things that preclude nighttime sleep. Parents/ teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. The children might recognize themselves in this little kitty cat. Sweet little kitty cat. They can discuss what it is like to get ready for bed and to go to sleep. The illustrations by Laura J. Bryant, are just lovely, colorful and bright with soothing colors to lull the little ones to sleep, but still describe the activities of kitty cat. This is perfect for bed time or just before nap time, or any time you want a soothing moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple bedtime tale with loads of appeal April 2, 2011
This is a great companion to Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat Are You Waking Up and is guaranteed to bring sleepy smiles to your little ones' faces at bedtime. The illustrations are very endearing and follow a mother cat and her kitten as mom tries to ready little kitty for bed. It's no surprise that kitty is in no hurry to go and offers up many excuses as to why it's not time yet. The rhyme flows nicely in a comfortable read aloud rhythm.

When you combine cute, peaceful illustrations with a nice rhyme that will remind kids of their day while easing them off to bed, you end up with a pretty near perfect bedtime story. This one is sure to generate lots of repeat reading as kids will want to thoroughly examine all of kitty's antics as she gets ready for bed. Recommended for young preschoolers and toddlers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first book October 4, 2011
We love kitty cat kitty cat are you waking up. This book is a great companion piece but the rhymes and text feel a bit more stretched to work while the first book is just great. The great disappointment here is the art. The illustrations are nowhere nearly as beautiful as in the first book (KCKCAYWU). They look rushed. The cat is more cartoony, and does not resemble the cat in the first book. It's still a nice book, but I wish the art would be of higher caliber to match the first book.

5.0 out of 5 stars so sweet, especially if your child likes cats July 24, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
It says this book is for ages 3-5, but I have a 20-month-old who ADORES it. It's his first choice for a bedtime book to read, and he kicks his little legs in excitement when I open the book to read it. We have 3 cats at home, and he loves them. He loves to point to the kitty cat doing all the different activities and also the sun and moon drawings which appear on several pages. It's a great little rhyming book for bedtime for any young kiddos!
