Description

Once there were four kittens who had never seen snow. The first three kittens are wary—snow is cold, it’s wet, it covers everything. As the seasons pass and winter begins to loom, the three skittish kittens worry. But the fourth kitten is getting excited. Snow will cover everything! “I can’t wait!”

Praise For A Kitten Tale

Starred review, Publishers Weekly, November 26, 2007:
"While this title has broad appeal, it is an especially apt choice for children who approach the unknown with fear rather than pleasure."

Starred review, Kirkus Reviews, December 1, 2007:
"A winner for a winter storytime, this is as amusing as watching real kittens romp."

Starred review, School Library Journal, February 2008:
“This playful look at living life to the fullest is a natural for young children.”
