With reading so many great picture books lately, this one fell a little flat for me. Wish there was a bit more to the story, either about the watchman or the kitty.

Picture Book: Letter “K”

Side note: I accidentally signed up for #BBRC twice so ended up with 2 partners (great for me)! @LauraJ @cwarnier you two are my partners for this challenge. 👋🏼 Would either of you be open to me getting your email from Ryan? No pressure!

Kitten‘s First Full Moon is a children‘s picture book written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes. Henkes‘ books won the Caldecott Award for his unique black and white illustrations. The story follows a little kitten who thinks that the full moon is actually a big bowl
of milk. This book has a lot of cause and effect opportunities and would be a great read aloud to precede a graphic organizer for EL strategy #7.

UDL 2.2 is designed to clarify structure. The above website gives you more information into the UDL checkpoint. Kitten‘s First Full Moon follows a clear structure that allows the teacher to guide students through exploring relationships of cause and effect.

I knew this would be interesting and educational, but I didn't expect it to be so inspirational and beautifully written. It is a sweet book with gorgeous illustrations and a powerful message of reaching for, if you'll excuse the pun, the stars.

JackOBotts A great story! My son really enjoyed this one. 22h

I read this on July 10 and gave it 4 ⭐️ on Good Reads. I had never read this as a child so I thought I would read it before giving it as a gift to a pregnant friend.

marleed I loved reading this to my kids. They had it memorized so it appeared as if they were brilliant readers at 2 yrs old! 6d
Aaronlisa @marleed that‘s pretty cool 🙂 6d

Night Garden: Poems from the World of Dreams | Julie Paschkis, Janet S. Wong

#LilithJuly Day 11: #SweetJane(t) Wong and Julie Paschkis collaborated on this poetry book with 15 poems in all. Each poem calls out to the darkness and the stars in quilted softness, the sandman sprinkling its golden dust throughout the pages in all its silvery-leafy-surreal texture as seen in Julie Paschkis‘ dreamlike artworks and Janet Wong‘s soothing verse. My review complete with poem excerpts: https://wp.me/pDlzr-5Rr

I Took the Moon for a Walk, a HF picture book written by Carolyn Curtis and illustrated by Allison Jay, is a great book to conduct S with students! This story is a fun and whimsical one that allows students to really use their imagination. (Cont.) #ucflae3414su19

galacticbees (Cont.) UDL strategies 1.1 and 1.2 and ESOL strategy 17 work best with this resource: https://www.rif.org/literacy-central/material/i-took-moon-walk-read-aloud-video
This resource is great for having students listen to the story and become involved in it. #ucflae3414su19

This book is gorgeous! Simply stunning. I don‘t know if you can tell by the photos, but the illustrations are painted on wood (you can see the wood grain easiest in bottom left pic). I now want to go out and read the other two Red Knit Cap Girl books immediately!

nelehelen I love the illustration!! 2w
