Format: Hardcover
Penny and Her Doll is Kevin Henkes second book about Penny the mouse. Penny has had the most wonderful surprise, a new doll sent from Grandma. The doll's bow is perfect, the doll's pink cheeks are perfect and the doll's big buttons are perfect. The only thing that is not perfect is that Penny cannot come up with a name for her doll. Mama and Papa try to help Penny come up with the perfect name but nothing seems to fit. As Penny shows her doll around the house the perfect name finally comes to her!
Nothing goes together like Henkes and mouse stories! His illustrations are always a treat and every little girl that has ever loved a doll will adore this book. This is perfect for beginning readers. Make sure to check out Penny and Her Song as well. Hopefully there will be more Penny stories to come!

We saw Kevin Henkes at a book signing and he was fabulous! He said this was his second easy reader and I think he did a wonderful job with it. My second graders boys and girls both like it but it's probably most appropriate for first grade readers. He said, which I think was interesting; his first Penny book was about something that was hers, the second(this one) was about something that was given to her and the third( coming out next year) is about something she takes...each a bit more complex and adding more to the plot!

Format: Hardcover
Reading Penny and Her Doll makes me definitely want to add the first novel Penny and Her Song to my wishlist. Penny is an adorable character. I love the family interaction with Mama, Papa, Penny and the twins. This is also a lovely book. The shades of pink and purple with greens is very attractive to the eye.

I really enjoyed this ARC and I will be putting this on my wishlist for keeps as well as other Kevin Henkes books. Penny and Her Doll would make a great grandmama gift accompanied with a doll to a sweet granddaughter in one's life, but as a story it is enjoyable for all.

*Thanks to HarperCollins for providing a copy for review.*

After enjoying this one so much I have acquired Chester's Way and plan on many more of his books especially the Penny early readers and I plan to dip my toes in his middle readers such as Junonia as well.

Bought this for my daughter and in fact used it as a party favor for all the girls at her 4th birthday. Easy introduction to the basic concept of a "chapter book". Enough basic words that she could work through, but still needed adult help to read the whole story.

If your daughter loves her dolls, this is a sweet book for her.

I have a granddaughter who is an early reader. I also love the author Kevin Henkes, so some exposure to her of his books.
