Praise
"In his first beginning reader, Henkes strikes all the right notes, integrating sight words with vocabulary not found on any standardized list (feather boa, for example) into sentences that sound like real speed. Like a fine tune supporting the lyrics, bright, pastel half-page boxes, spot art, and comic book frames carry the story for unsure novice readers."
From the Publisher
Annotation Learning to be patient is tough, and little mouse Penny has a wonderful song to share with her family. Mama compliments her song, but wants her to wait until later, as the babies are sleeping. Over dinner, with Penny anxious to share, she has to wait yet again so they can get through the meal. But after dinner, Penny finally gets to sing and everyone enjoys it immensely. With Kevin Henkes's thoughtful text and joyous illustrations.
