Penny and Her Marble
by Kevin Henkes
Oh the guilt! In this third easy reader about Penny, she finds a shiny blue marble on Mrs. Goodwin’s lawn. Penny takes the marble home, even though she knows that it isn’t her. That entire evening she feels out of sorts. She has bad dreams that night, all because of the marble. In the morning, Penny decides to return the marble. Young readers will relate to Penny and her sticky situation. An excellent book that will also work well as a discussion starter.
