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!

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.
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.
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.
This Caldecott winner is a super sweet story about a kitten who keeps mistaking the moon for a bowl of milk! I thought the story was sweet and the illustrations compliment the story perfectly! I think that this story would be great for young students but I think anybody can enjoy this tale!
