Description


Four kittens have never seen the snow. The first three kittens are wary--snow is cold, it's wet, it covers everything. This unknown thing called snow is a little bit. . . scary. As the seasons pass and winter begins to loom, the three skittish kittens worry. But the fourth kitten takes a different view. The fourth kitten is getting excited. Snow will cover everything?! "I can't wait!"

Caldecott Medal winner Eric Rohmann gives us a charming, gentle story that both respectfully acknowledges a child's fear of the unknown and celebrates the power of a positive outlook. Deceptively simple and quietly profound.

Praise for A Kitten Tale…


Starred review, Publishers Weekly, November 26, 2007:
"While this title has broad appeal, it is an especially apt choice for children who approach the unknown with fear rather than pleasure."

Starred review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2007:
"A winner for a winter storytime, this is as amusing as watching real kittens romp."

Starred review, School Library Journal, February 2008:
“This playful look at living life to the fullest is a natural for young children.”
