Kevin Henkes is the newest book about Penny. It is my favorite of the three books about Penny. One day she picks up a marble she sees and takes it home. She loves the marble, but then realizes perhaps it belonged to someone else. This book is for children three to seven.
Lester Laminack is a book I found at the library recently. It tells the story of three ordinary hens living on a farm, and an unusual addition to the farm, Peacock. The hens are jealous of Peacock because he attracts so much attention because of his beautiful feathers. The peacock and the hens switch places for the day and learn an important lesson. Preschoolers and grade school students would enjoy this story.
Read any good picture books lately?
