Title: How Kittens GrowAuthor: Millicent E. SelsamIllustrator: (Photographs) Neil JohnsonGenre: Photographic EssayTheme(s): Cats, Kittens, GrowingOpening line/sentence:How do kittens grow?Brief Book Summary: This book explains how kittens grow. It chronicles the different stage of their life.Professional Recommendation/Review #1: PSU LibrariesMargaret M. Bauman, formerly at Warwick Elementary School Library, Jamison, Pa.K-Gr 2- A simple text and engaging black-and-white photographs highlight the first eight weeks in the lives of four kittens from their newborn helplessness to their readiness to leave for a new home. Similar in format to the author’s How Puppies Grow (Four Winds: Scholastic, 1972), this is an attractive and informative book which will appeal to young primary readers as as well as older reluctant readersProfessional Recommendation/Review #2: Kirkus Reviews. . .the same way as . . .Puppies Grow (KR, 1972) only, to our prejudiced eyes, more engagingly. But why begin with ""Mother cat has just given birth to these four kittens"" when the whole dramatic experience was shared with us in The Birth of Sunset's Kittens?Response to Two Professional Reviews: The second review barely says anything really about this book. The first review has more to say. It talks about how engaging this book is, and how young readers will enjoy reading it. It also focuses on the photos of this book. This review explains that the photographs make the words more meaningful, which I agree with.Evaluation of Literary Elements: The photographs in this story make it that much more interesting. Real pictures of kittens make it easier to understand the material that is being taught. This book is well suited for the targeted age group. Young readers will be drawn to the pictures.Consideration of Instructional Application: In my classroom, I would use this book to explain how everything goes through the life cycle. It is important for kids to know that everything grows, just like they do. The pictures would add to my lesson. This book follows the lives of young kittens, which I think would be great information for the kids to have and understand. The kids could pick their favorite animal, and find out the life cycle of that animal. For example, the kids could find out how old different animals are until they are considered adults.
Simple text and large black and white photos show the growth of kittens from birth to eight weeks. I think books such as this are a great idea, because they can easily be used to replace that tired old excuse people give for letting their pets have unwanted litters: “I wanted the kids to learn about birth.”
How Kittens Grow is a great non-fiction text that considers student culture if any students have an affinity for kittens or cats. The illustrations are done in black and white but they are photographs.
This is a great book for any animal science project. It goes through the process of when a kitten is born and how they begin to develop. It discusses traits that a kitten will have while they are younger.
What a classic! Very easy reading for our daughter, with cute, original black and white photographs throughout. And she just adores kittys, so this read was purrfect. ;)5 Stars for simplicity and provided photography.
A Purrfect informational book about kittens in their first 8 weeks. Would be great to use inside the class to teach students how to give information. Nonfiction.
I really dislike this book but my girls really enjoy it.
