Staff Reviews

Penny (star of the endearing Penny and Her Song) finds a blue marble on a green lawn and pockets it, knowing it probably belongs to someone else. Incrementally, she is consumed by guilt. Her parents, recognizing a problem, encourage her to tell them about what is troubling her, but Penny handles this alone, and the next morning she returns the marble to the spot where it was found. A small, terse--yet humorous--I Can Read drama written on the same reading level as Frog & Toad. For ages 4–7. Available in paperback and hardcover.

This annual award, given to the most distinguished books for beginning readers, is named for the world-renowned children's author Theodor Geisel, also known as Dr. Seuss.

Kevin Henkes is known for his mouse characters, including Lilly, Owen, Chrysanthemum, Wemberly, and now Penny In Penny and her Marble, the third book in the Penny series, Penny finds a marble on Mrs. Goodwin's yard and takes it home. But does the marble really belong to Penny? Kevin Henkes is a master at creating beautifully illustrated books that resonate with young children.
