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.
