Jocelyn Reekie’s Kittens and Stars and Cats Who Meet Czars is a beautifully illustrated counting book designed for preschool children.

Reekie has created watercolor illustrations that are full of life and wonderful detailing, cleverly showcasing cats and kittens in various forms of naughtiness/mischief. The introduction of unique ideas and the pairing of almost peculiar concepts is a refreshing change from more traditional counting books, particularly for adults as they interact with young children in various settings. … The counting is highly original and full of humour… The educational importance in terms of the introduction of words, concepts, and the use of language in general is of great value. It is likely this exceedingly creative book would become more appropriate and appealing to children as they reach the upper age range, as they would have a greater understanding and appreciation for all of the features this book has to offer. Highly Recommended. Harriet Minuk, librarian at Winnipeg Public Library in Winnipeg, MB.
