Waiting by Kevin Henkes - ESSENTIAL


Henkes, Kevin Waiting, PICTUREBOOK. HarperCollins (Greenwillow) , 2015. $17.99. Content: G. 

A group of toys (an Owl, a Pig, a Dog, a Bear and a Rabbit) sit on a window sill, waiting and watching.  They each wait for something different, patiently and contentedly, just as toys should.  

This beautifully illustrated picture book is a wonderful lesson to children about waiting.  Everyone waits, and sometimes what we wait for happens and sometime something else happens.  A delightful bedtime or anytime story.
