Mittens is a small, shy kitten in a big, new house. Will he find a place just for him?
Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2006 Fall)
When Mittens the kitten arrives in his new home, he searches anxiously for "a small place just for him." But even after he finds the right place (under a bed), he still needs reassurance from his new owner, Nick, who understands the kitten's anxiety and promises to be his friend. The large-print text and spacious, close-up illustrations make this an accessible, satisfying story. Copyright 2006 Horn Book Guide Reviews.

PreS-Gr 2 -Mittens spends most of the book looking for a safe, quiet place to hide in his new home. Frightened, the kitten cries, bringing Nick, his owner, to his rescue. The controlled vocabulary in this gentle, unassuming story is made up primarily of one-syllable words, and the sentence structure is very basic. The soft pastel illustrations are simple and uncluttered and enhance the quiet tone of the text. This title would be good for easy-reader collections and could be used in toddler storytimes.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR[Page 126].
