A Kitten’s Year
Illustrated by Anne Mortimer / HarperCollins, 2000
Peeking, pawing, and pouncing, a curious kitten spends its first year exploring the sights, sounds, and smells of its world. Poetic text and exquisite illustrations capture moments and movements as a kitten grows—month by month—into a cat.
The critics say:
“Clear, realistic pictures, bright colors, short text, and the concept presented make this a great book for read-alouds.” —School Library Journal
“The minimalist text centers on catlike verbs…. Children will appreciate the kitten’s lifelike poses and its gradual progress toward cathood.” —Publishers Weekly
