"Only God Can Make A Kitten" by Rhonda Gowler Greene

This week I was able to review "Only God Can Make A Kitten" written by Rhonda Gowler Greene, and illustrated by Laura J. Bryant! In this adorable hardcover book, a little boy asks his mother a series of questions on God's creation. Each question is phrased similarly with a cute little rhyme. For example, the first rhyme says "Mama, look! A tiny sprout! Who made this sprig of spring pop out?"

Then the mama answers back in another short rhyme. There are also adorable pictures to go with each rhyme. The cover of the book says it is aimed at 4-8 year olds but my 3 year old absolutely loved it! My 11 month old even sat happily on my lap while I read it. They both loved the rhymes and pictures, and after I finished reading, my three year old requested that I read it again! I was pleasantly surprised at just how cute this book actually is. The story is fairly short, meaning that I could read it in it's entirety in just a matter of minutes. It's a perfect book to snuggle up with right before bed, or to read while eating breakfast! The main characters of this book are a little boy, his little sister and his mom, so I think this book would appeal to both boys and girls alike.
