Description  
This painting shows a grandmother and a young grandchild reading an alphabet book together. They have been temporarily distracted from the book by the two kittens playing. The kitten on the chair is pulling a thread from the child’s dress and the other is on the floor trying to climb up the chair leg. The appealing quality of Elsley's paintings were easily understood and presented a cosy, idealised world of happy smiling children and their animals. Elsley displayed much warmth and affection for his subjects and the sentiment in his art gave great pleasure and comfort to ordinary people.
