You know the old saying, “Find a penny, pick it up, and all day you’ll have good luck.” I feel lucky for discovering today’s picture book about a penny wo wants to prove her worth in:
When poor Penny begins to feel worthless, she sets off to prove she’s “worth a pretty penny” in this this multi-layered picture book. Readers will learn about a penny’s worth in both a literal and figurative “cents,” but they won’t feel like they’re being taught, thanks to Kimberly Wilson’s clever use of wordplay, humor, endearing characters, and creative storytelling and Mark Hoffmann’s expressive, animated, fun illustrations. The story artfully conveys themes of acceptance, self-worth, resiliency, and perseverance, and includes both STEM and history components in the main text and back matter. A PENNY’S WORTH is well worth place on your bookshelf!
