A new approach to the changing seasons--depicting them from the point of view of a favorite pet. As the children here explain, their cat is especially aware of her environment and adept at expressing her preferences. She has her own responses, like fur that grows thick in the fall, plus many traits are similar to a child's: she enjoys playfully testing the snow but is happiest snuggled up inside when it's cold; she luxuriates in the spring sun and even tastes the grass. Each season brings its own pleasures, which she enjoys with all five senses (there are also a few problems, like summer's ticks and fleas). The simple, informative text is amplified by appealing realistic pictures. A fine concept book. (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 3-- A warm picture book that takes a suburban family through the course of a year by describing their cat's behavior and reactions during each season. The book begins with autumn, when Mama Cat experiences the thickening of her fur for winter, and continues through the chewing of the soft new grass in spring, the birth of her babies in summer, and rolling in giant piles of leaves the following fall. The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are colorful, clear, and complement the poetic prose. This is a good read-aloud choice that can also be read independently by second and third graders. A sensory seasonal tour that will hold special appeal for cat lovers. --Dorothy Evans, Chicago Public Library
