Penny and Her Marble


Written and Illustrated by Kevin Henkes

I love this easy chapter book series by Kevin Henkes. They are a perfect “first” chapter book with easy to follow storylines, bold pictures throughout, and usually a good moral to the story. In this particular book, Penny finds a marble on her neighbor’s driveway, picks it up and takes it home. She then faces a moral dilemma on whether she should return it or keep it for herself. Provides a good lesson for students faced with a similar situation.
