Mama Cat Has Three Kittens 02/12/09
Mama Cat Has Three Kittens is on Harriet and my short list of favorite children's books. The book is a near perfect combination of repetition, adorable illustrations and humor. Best of all (from Harriet's perspective) it's about cats.
Mama cat, as the title explains, has three kittens: Fluffy, Skinny and Boris. While Mama cat is teaching Fluffy and Skinny how to do necessary cat things, Boris is off doing his own thing (napping). Until near the end, each pair of pages ends with "Boris naps." Harriet loves saying that line on each page, usually while giggling and falling over.
Denise Fleming like Eric Carle uses paper craft for her illustrations. She wrote and illustrated Mama Cat Has Three Kittens. I really like her style. The colors are bright and the cats are cute but still recognizably cats.
