A book best known for its bright and colorful illustrations is a nice read for younger children.

Green Eyes written by Birnbaum in 1953 is a Caldecott award winning book and features a variety of bold and fun illustrations to go along with a simplistic text that allows you to focus on the pictures. Nice for very young children to have read to them as the bright colors of the world being depicted on the page will captivate them.

I like how the words fall down the page like the leaves fall out of the tree.

I liked how the book showed the cat, Green Eyes, doing its daily routine and exploring outside along with the changing of the seasons.

I really like the pictures in this book. I also like that the book is bigger and I think children will enjoy the bright colors along with the large pictures.

Green Eyes is about a kitten who is born in the spring and enjoys finding new things like chickens, dogs and cows. He likes to be outside when it is warm and inside when it is cold.

I think kids would really love this book because the story is told from a cat‘s perspective. This makes it fun and interesting.

This is about a kitten named Green Eyes who experiences the seasons as they happen. The illustrations are bold and make up for the lack of words. Super cute and great for young kids

I really like this book and how it Green Eyes around and what he does in the country. It can show children how farms are and stuff like that.

I love the bright green used for the kittens eyes, it really adds to the plot of the story. As well as the light and delicate looking snowflakes.
