Little White Rabbit



Kevin Henkes is a Renaissance man. He can do it all: mouse books, picture books, and novels. This afternoon I read Little White Rabbit to kindergarten. After every read-aloud, I say, "And that's the story of__________ by ___________." We clap for 5-7 seconds and then students share their favorite and least favorite parts and illustrations.

Here's what they said about Little White Rabbit:

Thank you, Kevin Henkes, for Little White Rabbit. It is a delight to read alone and to a group.

Kevin Henkes got the idea for Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse in an airport.



Old Bear received a 2009 Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Award for Picture Book. (It should have won a Caldecott Honor.)


Are you saying Henkes correctly?


Junonia goes on sale May 24, 2011. Description from HarperCollins:

Returning to the beach cottage—a cottage named Scallop—where she has always celebrated her birthday is a special occasion for Alice Rice.

Who will see the first dolphin this time? The first pelican? What will have changed? Stayed the same? And will this be the year she finally finds a junonia shell?

Alice's friends are all returning, too. And she's certain her parents have the best party planned for her. Alice can't wait. If Alice is lucky, everything will be absolutely perfect. Will Alice be lucky?
