Kitten and puppy lovers will love this nearly wordless picture book about a puppy pretending to be a kitten. The puppy can't do things quite like the kittens: his meow comes out more like a 'ruff,' and imitating the kittens' acrobatics on chairs leads to a fall, but they all have fun anyway. When his mom shows up to say it's time to go home, he waves goodbye to his new friends saying, 'Next time let's all be puppies!'

In A Kitten Tale, we meet four charming kittens. Three of them love to play outdoors, but they have never seen snow, and they are afraid of it. All year, they dread it. A fourth kitten, who is more adventurous, says, 'I can't wait.' With cheerful kitten illustrations that capture the essence of a kitten personality, this is a great read for families who want to talk about new experiences and how we can choose to be scared of them or to embrace them as an adventure.
