This week and next week we are doing an author study of Kevin Henkes! He is known for his children's books such as Chrysanthemum, Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse, and Kitten's First Full Moon. We are discussing how Kevin Henkes' books are similar and different, as well as studying the characters, settings, problems, and solutions. This week we read Chrysanthemum and Wemberly Worried. Next week we will study Owen and Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse!
