In Penny and Her Song Kevin Henkes introduces us to a new character. A character just as interesting and unique as Owen or Lily. A character who loves to sing. This is a fun story of self-confidence, and finding joy in the simple things. Penny arrives home from school wanting to sing her song for her family. After both mom and dad interrupt her performance to remind her that the babies are sleeping and she needs to be quiet, Penny determines to sing her song for herself. But she discovers that singing to herself is just not the same as singing for someone else. She searches her room for someone to perform for without success. Finally, her parents come to her rescue, and Penny gets to sing her song. This book just might inspire readers to create their own songs. In fact that would be a fun activity to do with this book!
