Kevin Henkes was born in Racine, Wis. in 1960 and graduated from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. One of four children in his family, Henkes grew up with aspirations of being an artist. As a junior in high school, one of Henkes's teachers awakened his interest in writing. Falling in love mostra altro with both writing and drawing, Henkes realized that he could do both at the same time as a children's book author and illustrator. At the age of 19, Henkes went to New York City to get his first book, All Alone, published. Since that time, he has written and illustrated dozens of picture books including Chrysanthemum, Protecting Marie, and A Weekend with Wendell. A recurring character in several of Henkes's books is Lily, an outrageous, yet delightful, individualist. Lily finds herself the center of attention in the books Chester's Way, Julius, the Baby of the World, and Lily's Purple Plastic Purse. A Weekend With Wendell was named Children's Choice Book by the Children's Book Council in 1986. He recieved the Elizabeth Burr Award for Words of Stone in 1993. Owen was named a Caldicott Honor in 1994. The Year of Billy Miller was named a Newbery Honor book in 2014. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Informazioni generali



Vivid yet simple prose and artwork. It's a quiet book that would be perfect for an autumn bedtime story.

This book would be good for primary students. This book is "Waiting" written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes and published in 2015. This book is about toy animals sitting on a windowsill each waiting or something different. At the end, a new character joins and they all wait for what to happen next. I think this would be good in a classroom for independent reading for. new reader as there are very little words and the pictures say a lot. I think it is a heartfelt, sweet book that teaches kids to be curious and exciting for what it next in their life.… (altro)

This book was about a kitten who thought the moon was a bowl of milk. It was very cute but didn't hold a ton of educational value. It could be used for young readers to work on fluency and comprehension since it is quite simple. It could also be used to talk about the moon.
I would keep this in my classroom library or use it with beginning readers. This is appropriate for Preschool-practicing reading in 1st grade.
