Kitten's First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes

If you've been following my blog, you know that I love Keven Henkes' picture books. Some of his picture books are wonderful for children of three, four, five, six, and up, but he has also written books for babies.

If your baby or toddler loves animals - specifically cats, they will love the little kitten in Kitten's First Full Moon. Published in 2004, this storybook tells about a little kitten that thinks the full moon is a saucer of milk and tries without any luck to drink the moon.

The black and white pictures with heavy black outline are perfect for baby's eyes that are learning to focus, and this sweet story shows a kitten learning about his own world. This book won the Caldecott medal. You can be assured that if you purchase a Kevin Henkes' picture book for your child, you they will love it.

Link to our NICU book registry if you'd like to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We are in need of Spanish books at this time, especially board books. We can always use both English and Spanish books. 

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
