Kitten's First Full Moon By: Kevin Henkes

2005 Caldecott Medal Winner

Kitten's First Full Moon is a delightful little tale about a Kitten who mistakes the full and bright moon for a delicious bowl of milk. She takes a couple comical attempts on getting the "bowl of milk" and after each failed attempt we are reminded "Still, there was the little bowl of milk, just waiting."  The "poor kitten" eventually heads back home soaked and defeated to find a bowl of milk waiting for her on her doorstep (lucky kitten)!

The drawings in this book are amazing!  The kitten is adorable and you can read so many expressions on her face. My girls love saying "awwllll poor kitten!"  The book is in black and white and still Kevin Henkes makes the moon glow so bright and gives life to everything around the kitten in the night!

Here is to a satisfying read that won't disappoint the kiddos!
