A sweet, empowering story for young children about two brothers welcoming and caring for their new kittens
These two young brothers have waited weeks to welcome their new kittens, and they are determined to do a good job taking care of them. They help their new pets explore their food and water dishes, their litter boxes, and a comfy bed, trying to keep quiet and gentle so the kittens will feel safe. But one important question remains: What will they name these newest members of their family?
Narrated by the elder brother, Our New Kittens is a warm, accessible story for young children learning about the responsibility of pet ownership. Theo Heras‘ text is informative without being didactic, while Alice Carter‘s sweet illustrations model age-appropriate pet care.
