This and That

by Julie Sykes
Illustrated by Tanya Linch

Published by Farrar Straus and Giroux, 1996
26 pages
ISBN: 0-374-37492-9

Ages 3-5

A friendly orange cat wanders through the barnyard, asking the horse, pig, goat, sheep, hen, cow, and donkey for things she wants to borrow from them, "...for this and that..." she explains. The animals comply but, curiosity aroused, they all follow her to the barn to see what she's up to and there they find two newborn kittens--This and That! Collages created from torn pieces of painted paper illustrate a charming story with plenty of pleasing repetition and a surprising conclusion. CCBC categories: Picture Books; Books for Babies and Toddlers.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
