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

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.

crazy cat dude when he grows up. No doubt. He is going to be just like his uncle who has 7...yes 7 cats.
This rhyming book features cats of all shapes colors and sizes. There is no plot just rhyming featuring different stages in a kittens life.
Ok first must point out the drawings. ACK!! So darn adorable! Before I even opened up the book I was enamored of the cats on the cover. I'm not even talking about my son. I mean I myself was in love with them. It made me want to scoop our cat, Marshmellow and begin to stroke his fur.
I loved the rhymes which kept a nice quick pace to the book. While there was no plot my son easily kept up with what was happening. He was just happy to see so many cats.
4 out of 5 stars!
**This book was read with my special needs son who is severely learning disabled. The review reflects not only my opinion but his as well
Susan Meyers wrote "Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!,"and David Walker illustrated it. This book has 29 pages. The font is large. The illustrations are eye-catching. David Walker used pencil sketches topped with layers of acrylic paint. The result is illustrations of kittens that you can feel with your eyes. The illustrations are rich and deep.
The kittens are shown is different situations. They romp around, playing. They sleep, tangle themselves in yarn, eat, and explore.
The words are sing-song rhymes. In a couple of spots, it reminds me of Dr. Suess--just not as off-the-wall.
Parish loves the little girl's dress. Of course, it helps that it is pink; Parish loves all things that are pink. There is a picture of the little girl with her pink dress, sitting on a tree limb. Since reading this book, Parish has developed a fascination with tree-climbing.
"Do you like this book?"
"I like that dress. I want one like that."
"Maybe Meme can make you one like that. Looks at all of these cats! Would you want that many cats?"
"No. I don't want cats."
"But don't you think they are cute? Look at the gray one. This one looks like it is Siamese. Look at the fluffy tails."
"I don't like them."
This really surprises me. How can someone, especially my daughter, look at these obviously adorable cats and not think that they are cute? "Are you more of a dog person?"
"Does this mean that you want to give the book away?"
"No. We can keep it."
Isaac, my 15-month-old, really likes the pictures in this book. Maybe he will like cats when he gets older.
"Kittens! Kittens! Kittens!" is an excellent book for girls starting to read. The rhyming will keep them inspired to keep reading. The most difficult word is "everywhere." That word is found often in beginner books. Never mind that Parish does not like cats, this is a great book.
