FOLLOW ME, MITTENS by Lola M. Schaefer

FOLLOW ME, MITTENS

Age Range: 3 - 6

KIRKUS REVIEW

Sweet kitten Mittens and his owner Nick, are back in this second book about Mittens in the I Can Read series. They are exploring the safe, interesting world outside their front door. While on their walk, Mittens stops to smell the flowers and is distracted by a butterfly and gets separated from Nick. Not to worry, a sweet reunion is in store. Short, manageable repeated text, generous font and clear illustrations are hallmarks of a good offering for brand-new readers, and this one delivers on all counts. The language sounds a bit stilted to an adult ear, but the predictable text and easy-to-decode words are just what an emerging reader needs. More challenging words (“flutter,” “butterfly”) allow a little challenge and are repeated frequently enough to become familiar. Clear, uncomplicated illustrations complement the text, further ensuring reading success. Comforting predictable fare for the newest reader. (Easy reader. 3-6)
