Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
The first part of this book is filled with large color photographs of cute and cuddly kittens. This fact section talks about kitten language, types of cats, their claws, how mother cats take care of their kittens, where they live, what kittens need to learn, and what they eat. The only children that appear in the book's photographs are a little boy who looks about 3 years old and a girl who cannot be older than 5. A reader would suppose that in the second section, which is devoted to crafts, the projects would be appropriate for this age group. However, of the five crafts featured, only two are realistically able to be completed by a preschooler and only with much help from an adult. All the crafts require tracing templates and a great dexterity with a pair of scissors. To make the Cat Family Pajama Bag the template given in the back of the book needs to be enlarged more than twice the original size in order for the final bag to be big enough to hold a child's pajamas. This will frustrate many parents as well as the eager young reader. Other titles in this "Animal Babies" series are about cubs and puppies. 2000, Barron's, Ages 6 to 10, $5.95. Reviewer: Sally J. K. Davies
