Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

In this charming story, a mama cat loves her kitten through all the seasons: in autumn, when they rake leaves into piles; in winter, when they sled down snowy hills; in spring, when they fly kites; and in summer, when they splash together in the water. Parents, grandparents, and all the special people in a child's life will love sharing this sweet celebration through all the seasons of the year and in years to come.</p>  </p> Kay Chorao's warm and colorful illustrations bring to life Deborah Lee Rose's endearing verses, which capture the many ways a child is cherished year-round.<br> <br> <br></p> "Full of charming details and gorgeous colors, the love between each parent/child pair is obvious, and readers may find themselves wishing to share the same activities with a beloved adult of their own."<br> - Kirkus Reviews

Horn Book Review

Rhyming couplets express a feline mother's enduring love for her kitten throughout the year. The characters enjoy each season's highlights, including winter sledding, spring kite-flying, summer swimming, and autumn leaf-raking. The overly sweet verse paired with nostalgic gouache, colored-pencil, and ink illustrations add up to an uninspired, though warm-hearted, package. (c) Copyright 2011.
