Arlon, Penelope, and Tory Gordon-Harris. Puppies and Kittens. New York: Scholastic, 2013.
The story talks about baby puppies and kittens. It describes how they rely on their mothers when they are first born, but grow and eventually love to play. As they age, pets can communicate their wants by the sounds they make or the way they tilt their heads.
The writing style is fun, informative and easy to comprehend. The style is very descriptive when giving information about puppies and kittens.
The illustrations follow the puppies and kittens from birth age to growing up. It shows all the varieties and colors dogs and cats can have.
I would definitely recommend this book! It's a fun and full of great pictures for younger children in elementary school to enjoy. It would be good for a young child interested in getting a traditional house pet. It goes through the early life stages of a pet so children would know what to expect of their own puppy or kitten.
