In this story, the little kitten is trying to make its way to what it thinks is a bowl of milk in the sky. Springing from the stairs, running through the grass, and climbing a tree in attempts to reach it, eventually ending up all wet, poor kitty! This is beautifully written, simple, and introduces just the right amount of new vocabulary for young readers i.e. inquisitive, persistent, sprang. This is a sweet story, with beautiful illustrations. ( )

This is a funny and beautifully illustrated book about a kitten who saw the full moon and thought it was a bowl of milk. The cat ran up a tree through the grass, by the pond to try to get to the milk. I read this book to a class of first graders they were engaged and in tune to the misconceptions that the kitten made. They pointed them out and noticed the facial expressions on the kitten's face to see how it was feeling in each scene. A funny enjoyable read. ( )

A little kitten is enthralled by what she assumes to be a full bowl of milk in the sky. Unbeknownst to the little kitten, the "bowl of milk" is just the moon. The kitten attempts many times and many ways to get the "full bowl of milk" but is unsuccessful in her attempts as she attempts to reach it from a window sill, climbs a tree and even jumps into a pond when she see's the reflection. After her unsuccessful attempts to reach it the down hearted kitten strolls back home and to her surprise there is a full bowl of milk waiting for her on the porch! Finally, luck has come! ( )
