Kitty Kitty Meow Meow by Jessica Harris is a colorful rhyming picture book illustrated by an autistic artist, Eddie Harris. Its story revolves around the numerous reasons why a young girl fell in love with a kitten. The book also highlights the unshakable bond between the cat and her human buddy which remains intact despite the moggy's zany antics and outlandish behavior, such as its uncontrollable urge to scratch the furniture, or occasionally getting stranded high up in a tree.
Toddlers and preschoolers will like this picture book by Jessica Harris. It can help children learn a vocabulary of generally used verbs and adjectives. The rhymes and repetition encourage the beginning reader to chant repeated phrases and have them tell and retell the story, which can help introduce new grammatical structures and patterns for later reading, writing, and speech experiences. The language fosters confidence, empowers early readers, and makes them more likely to participate in and pay attention to reading activities. The bright and colorful illustrations and the attractive fonts also make it easier to get beginning readers involved. It is the right size for a young reader's small hands if they wish to start reading on their own. It can be used to teach the mechanics of reading, such as holding a book, flipping pages, or being aware of the printed letters and words and their function.
Children with learning impairments such as difficulty with attention span, memory, and even hyperactivity can also benefit from the book's repetition and rhyming pattern. Whether it's read on their own or with someone else, Kitty Kitty Meow Meow is suitable for preschoolers 3 to 5 years old or kids with learning challenges.
