Review

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

My kids love the Kitty Cat books. We have this one on our Kindle and my son, almost two, brings me the Kindle saying "Key Cat" when he wants it read. We have all three books in this series and love them all!

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.

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!

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.

Very cute bedtime story with fun and relateable illustrations. Our son loves reading this book at bedtime. It shows a playful kitten who isn't quite ready for bed...just like someone we know! But then at the end, kitten is ready for sleep and so is our little boy.

i love this book and so does our little boy. we quote it, its so cute!
it is excellent for bedtime, because as the book progresses, you can keep lowering your voice and by the end you can whisper "night, night".

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.

Surprisingly, my 2 year old enjoys this book more than my 3 year old does. I got it on my paper white e-reader and I would say that was tge reason my 3 year old didn't enjoy it so much. She didn't have the luxury of seeing the bright beautiful colors or truning the pages. If I purchase the book in stores instead of on my e-reader I would have most likely rated this book 5 stars.
