Penny and Her Marble
March 13, Henkes's pictures books have been special to me because his career was really taking off with the publication of Owen , his Caldecott honor winner, Chrysanthemum and Lily's Purple Plastic Purse at the time when my firstborn was old enough to appreciate picture books, which was also when I started working as a children's bookseller. His books feel like something my daughter and I discovered together, and his sweet, honest stories still capture those meaningful for good or bad reasons moments of childhood in ways that remain relevant.
