Sweet story about kids and kittens Jan 19, 2008
Too Many Kitties, Jeff Clineff's debut book, is a soft cover easy reader written in rhyme. It is illustrated with chalk drawings by Marina Movshina.
Too Many Kitties describes in detail, a day in a young boy's life with three playful kittens that have very different personalities. Young readers will enjoy the activities and antics of the young boy and his kitties. At the end of the book there is a page of `Picture Seek & Find' where children and parents can search through the book for the answers to the questions. I liked this part of the book as it gave the children and parents one more opportunity to interact while reading.
Clineff's book is fun and will appeal to young children who seem to naturally gravitate to animals. The illustrations, while lovely, are not particularly bright and colorful and didn't grab my grandchildren's attention. The children were more involved with the story itself and lost interest in the illustrations.
Armchair Interviews says: A story with children and animals are a great combination. Too Many Kitties is an entertaining read.
5 star review Dec 23, 2007
Too Many Kitties is a darling soft-cover easy reader written in rhyming prose that's chock full of colorful illustrations of kittens. This is author Jeff Clineff's debut children's book that came out in August 2007. The storyline is about a day in the life of a little boy who has 3 kittens with distinct personalities, and how the boy interacts with them throughout the day. It's a gentle book about the boy's commitment to his kitties, and how he loves the animals and takes care of them. I enjoyed all the antics the kitties did throughout the story, which will endear this book to young readers everywhere that have a love of animals, especially cats. The last page of the book has a "Picture Seek and Find" Activity section for the reader to enjoy.
Marina Movshina's chalk drawings are colorful and animated - sure to catch the eyes of the very young. I found it a fun read and highly recommend it to parents looking for a peaceful yet beautiful book with excellent lyrical flow to it. Author Jeff Clineff did a terrific job with just the right wording.
