This book is the first one Kevin Henkes has written for beginning readers. Penny arrives home from school with a song in her head that she can’t wait to share, but her baby sister and brother are sleeping and she has to wait. By the time she gets to sing, it is worth it! Her parents learn the song and the babies, as best as they can. (Preschool-Grade 2)

Curriculum Connection: It is a good reminder that sometimes fun, family events don’t need to be planned; they can happen in the spur of the moment. This is a good book to lead into discussions on the having to wait your turn even when it is hard.
