“Penny and Her Marble” by Kevin Henkes makes a great read aloud for grades PK – 2. Penny is loved by both boys and girls. I don’t want to give the story away, but if you have read any of Kevin Henkes book before, you might guess that this book has a very good character building lesson for the kids. It is great for building reading comprehension skills and critical thinking.
It’s simply awesome and kids love it!
Enjoy Shared Reading!
