"A gentle story of patience."-Horn Book (starred review)Caldecott Medal-winner Kevin Henkes's award-winning and bestselling mouse, Penny, stars in an irresistible story about anticipation, disappointment, and a brand-new sled.

Told in five short chapters, Penny and Her Sled is perfect for reading alone, reading aloud, and sharing together. When Penny, a sweet and curious mouse, gets a new sled, she can't wait to use it.

But there's one big problem-there's no snow!Patiently, Penny waits and watches for the snow to appear.

She puts on her scarf and hat. She sleeps with her mittens. Maybe if she's ready, the snow will finally come. But day after day, the snow does not arrive. Finally, Penny decides she will use her sled for other things-it's too wonderful not to!With a little imagination, the sled becomes a bridge for her glass animals to cross.

It becomes a bed for her doll, Rose. It becomes a magic carpet that takes Penny and Rose on adventures all around the world. And as Penny waits for a snowfall that may never appear, she learns all about the power of patience, imagination, play . . . and spring! Told in five short chapters, and with an emphasis on family and patience, Penny and Her Sled is the perfect choice for emergent readers and for family sharing.
