Knitty Kitty – Children’s Book

Even though Devan is no longer a little boy, I still like to browse the picture book shelves when we visit the library.

Sometimes I turn up real treasures. Here’s one I hadn’t seen before—naturally it features knitting.

In Knitty Kitty, alliteration and onomatopoeia are used to recreate the comforting sounds of knitting.

Tickety-tick.
Clickety-click.
Knitty Kitty sits and knits.

The charming illustrations really capture the adorable antics of the kittens.

Knitty Kitty keeps her kittens cozy, toasty and comfy but the mischievous little kittens have other ideas.

They share their mittens, hat and scarf with the happy snowman outside. When it’s bedtime Knitty Kitty herself keeps the kittens warm as they all snuggle together to go to sleep.
