More Spring Titles!

Kevin Henkes is the author and illustrator of a long list of successful children’s books. Click on these links to view them: picture books, mouse books, and novels.

I’m most fond of his picture books for the very young. Remember Kitten's First Full Moon? It won a Caldecott medal back in 2005. I love the striking simple images, and little ones really respond to them too. Here’s a snapshot from my bookshelf:

and fast
and persistent
and unlucky . . .
then lucky!
What a night!
