Kitten's First Full Moon

Henkes received the Caldecott Medal in 2005 for Kitten's First Full Moon (c. 2004).  With several repetitive lines sprinkled throughout, here's a story the kids love to read along with me -- filling in those anticipated lines.  Henkes presents a humorous story of kitten who eagerly attempts to lick from a bowl of milk . . . which he perceives the moon to be.  And somehow, unlimited by his black and white drawings, Henkes captures the moon's illuminate reflections.  This precious gem of a book best suits those kindergarten ages and younger.
