The Advocate's Toolbox


Kevin Henkes. illus. by author. HarperCollins/Greenwillow.

PreS-Gr 1–Five toys wait on a windowsill, with hope, yearning, fear, and joy. Henkes’s spare text and subtly expressive illustrations offer the youngest pre-readers a literal window into the sometimes scary but always wonder-filled world beyond the quiet comforts of what is known and what is loved.
