These two young brothers have waited weeks to welcome their new kittens, and they are determined to do a good job taking care of them. They help their new pets explore their food and water dishes, their litter boxes, and a comfy bed, trying to keep quiet and gentle so the kittens will feel safe. But one important question remains: What will they name these newest members of their family?
Narrated by the elder brother, Our New Kittens is a warm, accessible story for young children learning about the responsibility of pet ownership. Theo Heras' text is informative without being didactic, while Alice Carter's sweet illustrations model age-appropriate pet care.
