My Kitten, by Margaret O'Hair, illustrated by Tammy Lyon, Cavendish Square Publishing, 2011. Preschool to Early Elementary.
My five-year-old son picked this book out from our local library last week, and then he didn't want to return it. He thought maybe the book was about his kitten, Molly Kitten. I cannot condone keeping books, so I ordered him his own copy. My goodness, this book is darling, and oh-so-fun to read out loud. The text is simple, sweet, lyrical and tells a straightforward story. The illustrations are flat-out adorable. And, put together, my son was right -- this book WAS about our Molly Kitten.
