Green Eyes written and illustrated by Abe Birnbaum
A lovely picture book about the first year in the life of a kitten named Green Eyes who lives in the country. The book is beautifully illustrated as we see the happy, contented kitten in each season of his first year, beginning with his birth in the spring. The illustrations burst with color and show the magnificent landscapes of the countryside, including meadows filled with flowers, cows and horses happily munching grass, multi-colored leaves falling from the trees, and pure white snow and falling snowflakes. The cat has a wonderful life in the country and we share in his feelings of joyful living. Winner of the Caldecott Honor.
