I think this is a humorous book for children. I love that the author and illustrator show and say many other things that may look like a bowl of milk. To add to that, the ending was also great.

Kitten‘s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes published in 2004 is a great Kindergarten or 1st grade book! It is about a kitten‘s first experience with the moon. The adventure the kitten goes on is great for igniting children‘s imagination. This book received the Caldecott award, which is justifiable because the illustrations are exquisite throughout the whole book. It is a great read for children!

A kitten sees it‘s first full moon and thinks it‘s a bowl of milk. He goes out to try to get to “the bowl of milk” and does not succeed. He sees the reflection in the pond and falls in trying to get to the milk. He ends up wet, hungry, and sad. When he gets home there is a bowl of milk waiting and he is happy. It won the Caldecott award for pictures and was published in 2004. The genre is fiction and it is written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes.

It's the second book I found for my friend at Barnes & Noble.

We both love cats, so it would be hard to resist such a cute little story. I liked the humor too.

This modern fantasy Caldecott winner follows the story if a little kitten upon a full moon. She finds a big bowl of milk but can‘t reach! Students will root for her happy ending as she strives for the bowl of milk. This sweet story would be a great opportunity for some storytelling! #ucflae3414sp21

This sweet F Caldecott winning picture book is about a kitten who sees the moon and thinks that it is a bowl of milk. She spends her evening chasing the great bowl of milk in the sky but cannot reach it. After she gets back home, she finds her very own bowl of milk waiting for her on the porch. This is cute story with simple writing and would be great for younger emergent readers with GR.

deiacovab I would use ESOL strategy 6 Continually monitor students‘ comprehension during GR and UDL principle 7.3 Minimize threats and distractions since I could read with the student 1 on 1. I found an incredible author study to use while teaching this author's books at https://www.kevinhenkes.com/wp-content/uploads/KevinHenkes_DigitalEducatorsGuide... #ucflae3414sp20 2y
DrSpalding Going straight to the author is the best choice when seeking resources to use in your classroom. This book would work well for guided reading or of course as a read aloud. 2y

Review: Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes, 2004, is a Caldecott Winner about a kitten who thinks the moon is a bowl of milk. It has little text and large type, with luminescent pictures that bring it to life.
Blurb: I would use this in my classroom as a read aloud with children. Especially if children in the room had expressed interest in cats!

It was kitten's first full moon. When she saw it, she thought, there's a little bowl of milk in the sky, and she wanted it.

Kitten's First Full Moon is a caldecott Winner. I am a sucker for black and white books because I think that with the artist, something absolutly amazing can be done, this book is no exception.

This greyscale book about a silly kitten is a cute read. The use of no color was interesting and not my personal favorite but still very good illustrations.

Kitten's first full moon by Kevin Henkes was the 2005 Caldecott award winner. I think it's very interesting that a book in all grey could win the Caldecott award. It is a really cute book about a silly little kitten that thinks the moon is a bowl of milk and I did enjoy it, but best picture book for the whole year seems not quite right to me.

I thought this was a super cute story mostly because I love cats! I love to share stories about the things I like and cats are some of my favorite things ever. I think this would be a fun story to share with kids, so I can‘t wait to put in my classroom.

Kevin Henke‘s heartwarming F picture book is about a kitten following the full moon believing it to be a bowl of milk. While following the moon she gets herself into more trouble than it is worth! This book won a Caldecott award for its artwork. This book would best be taught through DR and RA.

CPettersen By doing a DR of this tale you could utilize UDL 1.2 and 1.3 as you are giving alternative methods for gaining auditory and visual information. Also EL 50 could be utilized as many comprehension activities could be used such as writing activities and role play. #ucflae3414f19 https://www.scholastic.com/teachers/lesson-plans/teaching-content/kittens-first-...

TristanPool This is such a cute book! The illustrations on just the cover are attention-grabbing. I can see little kids now dramatically reenacting the storyline!😂 @CPettersen 3y
Camrynm This sounds like a great book to use in the classroom! I will definitely read it. I think your EL strategy is great with the writing activities and role play. 3y
DrSpalding You mentioned dramatic reenactment or read aloud but your storytelling was beautiful! Obviously high-quality children‘s literature can be used in a variety of ways. 3y

I think this book is great for younger audiences. Its a simple book about the cat trying to get to the moon. It would be simple for young kids to understand what the cat is really trying to get. Kindergarteners would love this story.

A Caldecott Winning book. Very cute and well thought out(pub. 2004). The illustrations are in black and white but very simple. It is one of my favorite parts of the book; the illustrations.
The book is also very interactive and has a little bit of a rhythm to it. My favorite line is “What a night!“ I liked this line because the kitten finally gets what it was looking for at the end.
