KIRKUS REVIEW

Two cheery kittens enjoy preparing for the holiday in this delightful rhyming story for young children. The text is easy enough for toddlers to enjoy as a first Christmas story, and the pages are printed on a thicker, coated paper stock that will stand up to heavy use. The short, patterned text uses the construction of “we like . . . ” as the structure, so beginning readers could also follow the activities of the pair of cute cats. With a different holiday activity shown on each page, the two kittens play in the snow, pick out a tree, bake cookies and cake, wrap presents and decorate, before settling down on Christmas Eve in their red and green pajamas. With her attractive, full-page illustrations in watercolor and ink, Janovitz creates a comfortable, safe world for her two charming kitties, who live in a modern house and wear brightly colored, patterned clothes and socks, with the patterns in deliciously mismatched contrast. The final pages show the two kittens on Christmas morning, gleefully digging into their stockings and dancing around the Christmas tree. (Picture book. 1-6)
