Waiting by Kevin Henkes

Kevin Henkes has shown time and time again that he is a master at writing books for children. Waiting won a Caldecott Honor and a Theodor Seuss Giesel Honor.

Published in 2015, the soft colors of this book would go well in any nursery. This is a simple and sweet story about the toys in a nursery and how they wait for their child. The toys see the seasons go by through the window. They see the stars, moon, and sun. They see weather - both pleasant and powerful.

Henkes is on my "I must own every picture book he writes" list.

Michelle sent over seven more books for the NICU project today. Thank you, Michelle.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
