really liked it

Caldecott Picture Story Book: This story about a kitten's ambitious attempt to drink the bowl of milk in the night sky is simply but cleverly written. The use of repeated phrases and large print would make it a perfect read aloud to beginning readers. The author's use of strong verbs such as wiggled, sprang, bumping and stretched brought the kitten to life for the reader.I thought it was interesting the illustrations are in gray tones, perhaps to highlight the moon as a bowl of milk. I think I would have enjoyed some color on some of the pages, but I don't think the use of black and white images took away from the overall tone of the book. I would recommend this story for ages 4-7.
