Read full description of the books:
This is a story about four kittens who have never seen snow. Readers follow the kittens through the changing seasons, watching as one kitten eagerly awaits in anticipation, while the others grow leery of the unknown, snow. The colorful yet simple illustrations were made using Japanese woodcuts, which ultimately helped contribute to the powerful understatement of this story. While the facts and feelings were presented in the overall text, readers were able to draw from their own experiences and emotions to contribute to the overall mood. This is probably one of my favorite pieces of Rohmann’s work because it portrays the importance of adventure and how trying something new can be rewarding.
Uses in the Classroom:
A Kitten Tale would be a fabulous story to use to teach young children about the four seasons of the year. Rohmann’s colorful illustrations make it easy for students to see the differences between summer, fall, and winter. Since Rohmann does not include the season of spring, students can create their own illustrations, using any media, of the four kittens experiencing it, making sure that they include its common characteristics (new life, budding plants, etc.).
