Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-K

Jackson loves his soft, worn, fuzzy blanket and takes it everywhere he goes. His parents think it's time to wash it and put it away, but the child won't hear of it. Then he finds a tiny white kitten in the snow. He wraps it up in his blanket and takes it home. Jackson bathes and feeds the kitten and makes a bed for it using his blanket. The streamlined text and realistic watercolor illustrations come together to show how a boy grows up just a bit when the time is right. A great addition to most collections.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH

Kirkus Reviews

There's nothing not to like in this sweet tale of a boy who needs to give up his beloved blanket. As Cote's age-appropriate rhymes explain, " ‘A blanket's for a baby,' / his daddy tells him so. / ‘It's time to be a big boy— / this old blanket needs to go.' " But Jackson wholeheartedly disagrees. He takes it to his grandma's house, to the doctor's, even to the beach. He never wants it washed and uses it to protect him on stormy nights. Then one snowy winter day, Jackson discovers a kitten outside his house. He brings her in and makes a bed for her out of his blanket. His parents let him keep the kitten, and Jackson decides that since she's only a baby, she needs the blanket more than he does. Cote's functional illustrations, in watercolor-pencil and gouache, are pleasant, but the real meat is in the text. With a non-preachy and empowering ending, this story will certainly ring true to those ready (or not quite) to give up their loveys. (Picture book. 4-6)

    When will Jackson give up his blanket?

    At last ... the great blankee debate through the eyes of a child! Jackson will give up his blanket when he's ready, and all it takes is a homeless kitten for him to decide to share. Cote's illustrations are great fun, searching for the kitten on each page. 'Jackson's Blanket' is a winner in my house.
