Chronicles the birth and development of a litter of kittens, from their mother's preparations for birth, through their early growth and training, to their departure to new homes

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 3-- In two columns of print and three or four full-color photos per page, Jessel follows Lupin, a Burmese cat, and her offspring (Kandy, Brandy, Shandy, Mandy, Andy, Sandy, and Dandy) from their birth through the adjustments Dandy must make in his new home. Although the kittens' activities and growth are clearly described, this makes no pretense of being a handbook on cat care. At the same time, the format and impersonal tone of the narrative keep readers at a distance from the fuzzy, enchanting animals. Jane Burton's Ginger the Kitten (Random, 1988), although smaller in size and shorter in text, takes readers closer to her brightly striped subjects by presenting them in fewer, larger photos, and simultaneously increases the book's informational value by organizing it by headings that give the kittens' age. The Kitten Book is a reasonable second choice. --Margaret Chatham, formerly at Smithtown Library, NY

From Publishers Weekly:

Few children--or grownups, for that matter--can resist the allure of cuddly kittens and rambunctious puppies. In this lively twosome, photo-essayist Jessel focuses first on a Burmese cat and her offspring, then on a Labrador dog and her litter. Following an identical format in each book, she leads youngsters through the experiences of the mother animals' pregnancy and birth, to the kittens' and puppies' first months of life--featuring captivating shots of the little ones at play--and finally the process of finding homes for these new animals. A considerable amount of information about animal behavior and pet care is seamlessly woven into the steady, upbeat narratives. The caring, supportive tone of each book is reinforced with more than 70 well-composed and carefully placed color photographs. Essential resources for pet lovers, these volumes are especially notable for their keen respect for animals. Ages 4-up.
