A simple rhyming book gives readers a sense of what autumn looks and sounds like on a farm from the viewpoint of a kitten. This is a beautifully illustrated book using clay, acrylic paint and mixed media collage. The autumnal hues are rich and vibrant. The text is not lost, the layout allows it to stand out against a white backdrop. While the book itself is smaller than I prefer for use in storytime, the juxtaposition is so fabulous I think it would work with a small to medium sized-group of tod ...more

Kitten's Autumn by Eugenie Fernandes is the follow up to Kitten's Spring and Kitten's Summer. Done in a "multimedia collage" (see the Paper Tiger interview), the artwork has the clarity and depth of a diorama.

In the story, an adorable calico kitten takes a walk through the forest, observing the wildlife. The cat's explorations are recorded in rhyming quartets.

The language is sparse but poetic, easy enough for a beginning reader to handle but interesting enough to use in a group story time.

30 months - When possible I try to find Canadian authors/illustrators. I always love process, and the illustrations in this book are cute, collage with a mix of found items, sculpted creatures, paint and paper elements. The texts is short and brief. This likely would have really appealed to O between the ages of 12 and 18 months but because the images are so much fun the story can be overlooked. She liked the porcupine munching on a shoe.

The wonderful mixed media artwork of this book enhances the delightful little rhyme. It is also fun to find where the kitten is on each page; not hard for grown-ups, but smaller children might have to look a bit. My granddaughter liked this book.

Simple words and pictures--a good choice for my all young ages movement storytime. Also a good way to teach what is occurring with many wild creatures during the autumn.

10/5/15 Worked well. I had the kids join me in some of the actions or noises of the animals.

There is not much to this book except some pretty spectacular modeled and dimensional illustrations, and a kitten who may or may not be hiding. But those illustrations are enough to get four stars from me.

This book has amazing illustrations that will catch the readers attention. There is a simple and rhyming flow to the text that will make it a fun read for children. This book also helps to teach children about autumn.

Good use of action words and interesting pictures. A solid choice for a storytime about nature, fall, woodland animals, or eating.

While wandering in the forest, Kitten discovers various woodland animals enjoying their dinners. Great word choices and 3-D paper collages throughout.

Lovely illustrations in clay, acrylics and mixed-media collage. Very short and perfect for a toddler story time.
Edna
Great textile and busy illustrations that kids can look at for minutes on end and try to find kitten who is hidden somewhere in all the forest pictures.
