A Kitten Tale

Read: 12/3/2008

A Kitten Tale by Eric Rohmann

What a fun little book. Okay, the format is a normal picture book format, but the story is simple and so are the pictures. This would be great to read to 3 year olds.

Four kittens go through the seasons thinking about the snow that will fall in the future. Three of them are afraid of the idea of snow, the fourth welcomes it. When the snow eventually falls, the fourth kitten shows the others that playing in the snow is great fun.

I really like the illustrations, they are simple and clear, the kittens are appealing and not overly anthropomorphised.
