This was one of my favourite books as a child and now I think it'll be one of my daughters favourites as well. Simple phrasing and colourful pictures make this an engaging book for babies if all ages.

I love this book and right now my daughter has come to love it and brings it to me to read repeatedly. I think that this copy may actually be from my childhood.

My Mom brought my childhood copy of this to me recently and I re-read it with Dylan and so many wonderful memories of this sweet story came back to me. No wonder I wanted a kitten so much when I was a little kid!

If I were rating books for purely sentimental reasons I would give this one five stars, but since I'm trying to be objective it only gets three. Still, a cute little starter book and one that I know I'll enjoy sharing with my little one.
