 A kitten tries and tries to take a cat nap but there are too many noisy interruptions; first a bee, then a chickadee. Snuggling up in the safety of mother's paws, soothed by her loud purr, turns out to be the best sedative. This book and the others in the series (Chick's Daddy, Piglet's Bath, Puppy's Games) highlight small events in the lives of young animalsexperiences that won't be unfamiliar to toddlers. Spohn's illustrations are an intentionally naive set of images; she uses the thickness and opacity of the paint to convey the cuddly awkwardness of these young animals. (Board book. 1-3)
