Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
It seems no one is immune to the magic of the season-not even cats. Two adorable, roly-poly felines extol the time-honored joys of Christmas-choosing a tree, wrapping packages, baking cookies-in brief, rhyming verse ("We like lights. We like balls./ We like holly in the halls"). The orange and gray tabbies sport brightly patterned clothing and cavort in a thoroughly human, zestily watercolored world. In its undersize format, this pleasing paperback offers youngest readers easy entr e into the secular traditions of the holiday. Ages 2-5. (Sept.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal

PreS-K-Two cute kitties celebrate the joys of Christmas in this large-format picture book. Unfortunately, the derivative Rosemary Wells-like illustrations and the simple text don't offer much beyond the sweet bouncy rhymes and images. "We like wreaths./We like flowers./We like finding the tree that's ours." The text scans (more or less) and the bright illustrations are cheery, but this offering won't distinguish itself in any collection.-Anne Connor, Los Angeles Public Library

Kirkus Reviews
Two cheery kittens enjoy preparing for the holiday in this delightful rhyming story for young children. The text is easy enough for toddlers to enjoy as a first Christmas story, and the pages are printed on a thicker, coated paper stock that will stand up to heavy use. The short, patterned text uses the construction of "we like . . . " as the structure, so beginning readers could also follow the activities of the pair of cute cats. With a different holiday activity shown on each page, the two kittens play in the snow, pick out a tree, bake cookies and cake, wrap presents and decorate, before settling down on Christmas Eve in their red and green pajamas. With her attractive, full-page illustrations in watercolor and ink, Janovitz creates a comfortable, safe world for her two charming kitties, who live in a modern house and wear brightly colored, patterned clothes and socks, with the patterns in deliciously mismatched contrast. The final pages show the two kittens on Christmas morning, gleefully digging into their stockings and dancing around the Christmas tree. (Picture book. 1-6)
