Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1 Galdone lends new life and sense to the verse in this exuberant retelling of the Mother Goose rhyme with four delightful feline characters. The large type is readable and inviting, with only one or two lines of text per page. Double-page spreads are filled with vibrant watercolor washes over ink sketches. While the expressions of the cats will be the focus of children's attention, there are countless details for them to discover for themselves, such as the animal-influenced decor of the cats' home, the spice cabinet filled with different varieties of catnip, and cat ancestor portraits. Children will relate to the kittens' deserved punishment for carelessness, their theatrical displays of sorrow, and their earnest efforts to get into both their mother's good graces and that delicious looking pie. This refreshingly hearty version of the nonsense verse will be as much a favorite of adult storytellers as it will be of toddler listeners. Yvonne A. Frey, Peoria Public Library, Ill.

This is a version of that story, illustrated by Paul Galdone's.
Amazon Customer
The use of repetition in the book is great for beginning readers, who will excitedly read along with a grown-up or caretaker.
Pam
Used it to read aloud and also had them listen using the Cd that was enclosed.

My 2 1/2 year old loves this book! We have taken it out of the library so many times, I have finally decided it is time to own it! I think she identifies with the sweet kittens who get into trouble but then make amends and get to eat the pie after all. Both toddlers and preschoolers will love this beautifully illustrated book.

My sons have requested this be read to them about 10 times just today! As all of Galdone's fairy tales or nursery rhymes, this is very true to the traditional telling. The special part here is the living, clever and detailed pictures. They show such neat details as a kitchen with catnip in every form---chopped, minced, blended, etc---in a spice cabinet! The cats' expressions are priceless---you wouldn't guess cats could be so expressive.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful version of the classic story of the "Three Little Kittens". The artwork in this book is very colorful and detailed and exactly right for young children. My son (just turned 3) loves this book and must request it (we just got it) 6 times a day. The only other thing that he shows this much enthusiasm for is Thomas the Tank Engine.

His older sister (5) and I like it too, principally because of the funny details in the background and because of the amusing expressions on mama cat's face.

Some of Paul Galdone's best work.

the CD music intro is too long for young children too wait. The illustrations were unattractive. My students love this story but this book did not get big reviews from my kids. When give my kids two books to choose from this book never is their choice.

When I was a little girl, many, many years ago, this was my favorite book. It was often my bedtime story. I don't know what happened to the book. It went the way of so many childhood things. When "Three Little Kittens" showed up as a Kindle daily deal, I didn't hesitate. Love the book and the illustrations. Such fond memories.

My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter is just learning nursery rhymes, and especially loves kittens. This book quickly became a favorite after I took it to her last winter. I made outlines of mittens on the copier for her to color, (scribble) and cut out, (I did the cutting). We strung them together with yarn and she wore them around her neck for the afternoon. Then after showing them to her parents, she wanted to hang them on the Christmas tree. When her older brothers came home from pre-school and 1st grade, they wanted to hear the story, and make mittens too. Her mom says she often sees her "reading" the book...turning the pages and reciting the story in her own words. That sure warms Grammy's heart! The pictures in the book are cute/lovely and detailed. I now have 3 more copies for other grandchildren.

My kids always liked the books on tape or cd. The Three Little Kittens was one of the favorites.
