Book review: Waiting, by Kevin Henkes

Henkes, Kevin. Waiting. Greenwillow Books, 2015. $17.99. ISBN 978-0-06-236843-0. Unp. Ages 1-4. P8/Q9

Henkes WaitingThis is a beautiful book with soft, simple, muted, color pictures to tell the story of different toys who sit on a window sill and look outside waiting for different weather and seasons. They have visitors who come and go. At the end of the story there is a nesting cat toy that joins the toys on the window seal. This is a beautiful story of waiting and imagination.
