Come look at our bulletin board about Kevin Henkes.  We are all looking forward to his new book, "Waiting".


The owl, the pig, the bear, the puppy and the rabbit are all waiting for different things.  

What can it be?  Put this book on hold so you will be one of the first people to read it and find out.  While waiting, come explore our display of other books he has already written.  Kevin Henkes is not only an author but an award winning illustrator.  His book titled, "Kitten's First Full Moon", won the Caldecott award.
