Written and Illustrated by Kevin Henkes
Greenwillow Books, 2015. Picture Book.
Five toys wait on the windowsill looking out at the world drifting past outside. Each toy is waiting for a different reason. Each experiences joy at a different moment. But they all enjoy each others company as they wait. This delightfully simple story is all about celebrating and savoring the journey of life rather than focusing on arriving at a fleeting destination. Young readers will especially love the cozy, kid-friendly pastel pictures which draw readers into the toys' small world. Kevin Henkes has done it again!
