From the PublisherIn this soothing picture book, five contented kittens "lived in a house / with their mama and papa / and their little toy mouse." The rhyming text guides us through their day, a pleasant routine revolving around meals, baths, play, and bedtime, with a parallel set of activities as the five kittens care for their toy mouse. With rhythm and rhyme neat and true, the text hums along, accompanied by Sayles' softly shaded pastel illustrations. The rounded shapes of the kittens, the placid smile of the toy mouse, and the orderly progression of familiar activities all combine to make this a pleasing, even soporific choice for bedtime reading.
"An original nursery story...written with the simplicity and catchy rhythm of classic Mother Goose, the text will soon have listeners chanting along." School Library Journal
