Up Cat by Hazel Hutchins

Book Jacket Summary
A cat can get tangled up in all kinds of fun and mischief between wake-up time and nap time. Follow along with the playful text as Cat laps up milk, messes up the house, gets up to no good, stands up to a visiting dog, and finally curls up for a nap in the sun.

The expressive, energetic illustrations against simple backgrounds mirror the spare but rhythmic text that teaches about "up" actions while leading the reader through a day in the life of a cat.

Together with "Up Dog," this board book will soon be a favorite of toddlers and preschoolers who adore animals.

My Quick Thoughts
This board book is adorable but I think that is the aim when kittens are involved. This book shows young children the various ways the word up can be used. The kitten jumps up, is all snarled up, is up to no good, and other various activities. It is cute to watch the kitten scrunched up in a box or leap up into a window. This will be for very young children and for parents who do not mind repeating the same word over and over again.
