Book Review: Waiting

November 24, 2015

Waiting by Kevin Henkes
From Miss Heather at Butler Branch and Lucas Branch

"Kevin Henkes’ newest book provides a great opportunity to discuss what sorts of things we look forward to throughout the year. With crisply outlined, beautiful pastel colored illustrations, children are quick to depict the subtle hints provided, enabling them to predict and observe many things. This book is a great springboard for a multitude of themes such as seasons, anticipation, patience, emotions, toys, counting, favorites, [and more]. For children preschool through second grade."

Thanks for the review, Miss Heather! You can find Waiting here at the library. Check out author and illustrator Kevin Henkes' website for more about his other books, including his Caldecott Medal winning Kitten's First Full Moon.
