Kitten for a Day

Ezra Jack Keats (2002), 32 pages
Audience: Preschool - Preschool
Category: Animal, Fiction, Picture Books

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!'
