Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"Kitty Cat, Kitty Cat, Are You Waking Up?" was a sweet book for children aged preschool to first. The main character, Kitty Cat, could be easily identified as being a preschooler to a first grader in the way that she behaves. I most enjoyed the illustrations and easy read of the story. The story is written in rhyme with a repeating beginning phrase. Students can make quick predictions about what they believe the mother will ask Kitty Cat next. The illustrations in the story present the reader with a warm, homely feeling and the colors used are light with soft hues. Kitty Cat is a sweet kitten and I know that younger children would completely enjoy making comparisons to themselves and identifying with her and her mother's loving tone. I highly recommend it!
