"A brief, first-person text and full-page photographs follow the birth and growth of a litter of kittens in this simple, appealing documentary. A little girl watches her aunt's cat, Cleo, as she gives birth and cares for her kittens; eventually, the girl is allowed to choose a kitten for herself....A very satisfying introduction to the family life of cats."--Horn Book.

Joanna Cole is the author of the popular Magic School Bus series, I'm a Big Brother, I'm a Big Sister, and many other award-winning books. In Asking About Sex & Growing Up, she provides a reassuring blend of practical guidance and scientific fact for the audience that needs it most.From Booklist :
Ages 3-6. Cole is no stranger to cats (her book Cat's Body was published in 1982) or to Miller, who provided the photos for Cole's 1991 My Puppy Is Born. Working together again, the two offer a delightful view of a child coming to know and to love a kitten. The photo-documentary follows the budding relationship in nongraphic pictures from the kitten's birth and early development until the exciting moment when the little girl, who's grown to love the feisty fur ball, is finally able to take it home from her aunt's house. With Miller's warm, colorful photos showing the tiny creature as it explores its new world, first with its mother close by, then on its own, and finally with a smiling child as caretaker and companion, Cole puts the emphasis on development, not birth (for information on that, turn to Camilla Jessell's excellent 1992 Kitten Book). It's the fetching, often close-up photos and the feelings they inspire that make this book special, with the factual information adding just the right bit of glue. The result will be difficult to resist. Stephanie Zvirin
