As Penny plays outside with her doll, she spots a beautiful blue marble in her neighbor’s yard. She wonders if she should take it, and she decides she can.
But Penny hadn’t asked permission to have the marble, and as her conscience nags her, she loses interest in life.
When she finally decides to return the marble, she gets a pleasant surprise.
Penny and Her Marble by Kevin Henkes is a sweet story for children just starting to read. Henkes wrote several books about Penny, so once children get to know her, they can read more about her adventures.
Recommended for beginning readers, ages 4 – 8.
