"Come on, lazy kitty, come to Granny's house--She really needs a kittycause her house has got a mouse."This kitty won't go to Grannys house, play in the park, or go to the beach. He only wants to sleep, which is just fine at bedtime. For toddlers beginning to speak, here is a poem with a catchy refrain that provides the pu"rrrrr"fect opportunity to play with new words and sounds.
School Library Journal
PreS-Two appealing board books. Purrrrr features an African-American boy who tries to entice his lazy cat to join him in various activities. The bold colors and endearing characters will appeal to toddlers, who will recognize many familiar objects (ball, bat, crayons) and will soon be repeating words from the catchy rhyming text. You Are My Perfect Baby celebrates an infant's "twinkling toes," "wiggly waist," and "tiny ears." The softly colored illustrations show an African-American child playing with toys, eating cereal, taking a bath, and walking with his mother's assistance. As they read the book aloud, parents will enjoy playing with their own little ones' perfect hands and feet, and babies will like the rhythmic, musical quality of the text. These titles will fill the growing need for material for the very young.-Dawn Amsberry, formerly at Oakland Public Library, CA Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
