"The Purrfect Pawse" is subtitled "a little book to help children pause, stretch and be grateful". First readers are gently invited by yoga posed portraits of Catreen the cat, ( accompanied by a small n1ouse friend) to go through a series of morning stretches. Each pose is starkly engraved and fluidly described in lulling verse. "The Purrfect Pawse" is a morning to night book of poems written especially for children ages 4 to 7 years. Including an enchanting end poem "Stars in the Night," starring Wolfgang the sleepy wolf, readers are taken on a pre-bedtime night journey through starry skies to summon all the people, things, and places they love best, stir them in a cocoa filled cup, and drink them up, feeling replete with sleepy dreams of gratitude.
