Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Great for preschool storytime, a back-to-school read-aloud, or just a fun story about animals."-School Library Journal reviews Carol Roth's The Little School Bus.
School Library Journal
Pre S—This charming farm tale provides the reassurance children want and need. Little Kitty wakes from her nap to find that her mother is not there. As she goes looking for her, the kitten runs into a calf who advises her to call "moo, moo, moo." Of course, that brings a cow. The same happens when she asks a piglet, duckling, and colt and they try to help with "oinks," "quacks," and "neighs." A sad Little Kitty curls up and meows quite loudly, which brings her mother "running as quick as a wink." Little Kitty now knows just how to call for her. Endearing illustrations done in acrylics steal the show. The animals'expressions exhibit joy, curiosity, and wonder. The farm scenes exude warmth. This picture book is perfect for storytime, as children will love chiming in and will delight in the reunion of parent and child. Well done.—Anne Beier, Hendrick Hudson Free Library, Montrose, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Animal sounds, a barnyard setting and a search for a missing mommy are the elements that coalesce into this pleasing if not terribly distinguished tale. Little Kitty wakes up from a nap and discovers that her mother is gone. After a fruitless search in the barn, she encounters a little calf and asks for help. The calf cheerfully instructs, "Listen to me carefully. / I'll tell you what to do. / Whenever I want my mommy, / I just call MOO, MOO, MOO." (While the baby animals all speak in rhyme, the rest of the narrative is conveyed in ordinary prose.) Of course Little Kitty summons the mommy cow instead of her own. The pattern continues with piglet, duckling and a colt. In despair, she curls up and begins to cry, "Meow, meow, meow." As her cries get progressively louder, Julian provides a full bleed spread in warm hues featuring kitty's mommy looking out from a wagon. "Quick as a wink, she came running." The conclusion is more than a bit pat: "Little Kitty never forgot how to call her mommy again." This sweet story will most likely appeal to toddlers and young preschoolers. With ample opportunities to join in on the animal calls, this is an easy choice for storytime or sharing one-on-one, but it is hardly the only farm/animal-noise book on the shelf. Decent but not extraordinary. (Picture book. 2-4)
