Kitten's First Full Moon
My daughter's birthday is coming up and I can't help thinking about how time has flown by! I am going to have a six year old very soon! It seems as though lots of little people are born in the month of March. In fact, five of my very good friends all had babies within weeks of Kylie's birthday. Know anybody expecting a bundle in the next couple of weeks? If so, try picking up this sweet book Kitten's First Full Moon, by Kevin Henkes. I am not a huge fan of kittens, but I am a big fan of Kevin Henkes. This book tells an adorable tale of a kitten who mistakes the moon for a bowl of milk. The shimmery black and white photos are stunning and add to the magic of the book as the kitten makes various attempts to take a lick of that milk. Sticking his tongue out won't work. Running after it only makes it move further away and he just can't seem to leap high enough! After an exhausting evening, he returns home to a bowl of milk...lucky kitten.
