Read full description of the books Three Little Kittens:This is a folklore and a picture book written for children N-P.
This is a story about three kittens who do different things that make their mom both happy and sad. Throughout the story they work to make sure they keep their mom happy.
This book would appeal to children that are young and not to those past the preschool or kindergarten age. This is good book for young children because it is brief enough where children are able to repeat the story easily and make it more enjoyable for them. The pictures are very creative and colorful and compliment the story well. I also liked the different tones in the story. The kittens were happy, sad, glad other feelings.
For the age group that this story was written for, their are many extension activities that can be done. For example, the children could draw a picture of their favorite part the story. They can make cat masks and pretend to be the three kittens and put on a show for other classes. Another idea is that children discuss the different emotions that they noticed in the story and also act them out.
