Kitten’s First Full Moon – Picture Book Read Aloud with Kevin Henkes


[MUSIC] Are you ready for story?>>Yeah.>>Kitten’s First Full Moon.>>Kitten’s First Full Moon. That’s right.>>I have that book at home
>>You have that book, great. It was Kitten’s first full moon. When she saw it, she thought, there’s a little bowl of milk in the sky,
and she wanted it. So she closed her eyes and stretched her
neck and opened her mouth and licked. But Kitten only ended up
with a bug on her tongue. Poor Kitten. Still, there was the little bowl of milk,
just waiting. So she pulled herself together and
wiggled her bottom and sprang from the top step of the porch. But Kitten only tumbled, bumping her nose
and banging her ear and pinching her tail. Poor Kitten! Still, there was the little bowl of milk,
just waiting. So she chased it down the sidewalk, through the garden,
past the field, and by the pond. But Kitten never seemed to get closer. Poor Kitten! Still, there was the little bowl of milk,
just waiting. So she ran to the tallest tree she
could find, and she climbed and climbed and climbed to the very top. But Kitten still couldn’t reach the bowl
of milk, and now she was scared. Poor Kitten, what could she do? Then in the pond,
Kitten saw another bowl of milk. And it was bigger. What a night! So she raced down the tree and
raced through the grass and raced to the edge of the pond. She leaped with all her might. Poor Kitten! She was wet and sad and tired and hungry. So she went back home. And there was a great big
bowl of milk on the porch… Just waiting for her. Lucky Kitten!>>[APPLAUSE]
>>The end.>>Adorable.>>Thank you. Does anyone in here have a kitten?>>I have cats.>>You have cats.>>I had a kitten.
>>I used to have a cat—no, that was not it.>>No, not anymore, I have a cat at home.>>Yes, I have two cats right
now named Numby and Izzie.>>[LAUGH].>>Can you guys show me by raising
your hands does anybody like to draw? Do you? I’m going to draw a picture and
see if you know who this is.>>I think I know what it is.>>You know what it is?>>A cat.>>A cat.>>Yeah.>>It’s a kitten.>>It’s Kitten.>>That looks like the kitten in the book.>>And
it looks like the kitten in the book, yes.

  1. I'm also going to read this purrfect children's picture book aloud to the children at the facility I work at next Thursday after Labor Day. It's for a storytime activity that I'm famous for doing interactively with sick children and their families or possibly their caregivers. Kevin Henkes is a lean, mean drawing machine. He's not bad at all. 🥂!
