Waiting | Kevin Henkes
Pickpick

Review: Waiting by Kevin Henkes, 2015, is a Caldecott Honor book about toys waiting for things to happen as they sit on their windowsill.
Blurb: This book has amazing illustrations and not a lotto words because the pictures do the talking. I would use this as a read aloud book since like I said, there aren't many actual sentences.
Quote: “Once a visitor arrived from far away. He stayed a while, then he left and never returned.“

It‘s travel time again! This time I‘m at the airport waiting for a very late plane. I finally gave in and started my #reread of The Hunger Games and I have to say I‘m really enjoying the experience again! #waiting

This is a great book for the classroom. It teaches the importance of patience, and teaches the kids about how caterpillars turn into butterflies! So it is a little science lesson as well! It teaches the kids that you have to be patient in order to get good things.

This is a picture book. It is very cute and creative. It is about an impatient caterpillar who learns how to transform into a butterfly. The illustrations are amazing and go so well with the words on the page.

Waiting is a F, Caldecott and Geisel award winning book by Kevin Henkes about a stuffed animal pig, bear, puppy, and rabbit waiting by a window for something to happen. This is a great book to teach kids about patience. I think this book would be good as a RA. This video is a good example of a RA of this book: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=89bZv8tEOx4

Mwinship The EL strategy 12 about teaching language and content and the UDL guideline 2.3 about supporting decoding of text properly align with this RA and book. #UCFLAE3414F19 4w
abbie-cadabbie The fact that this story is both a Geisel and Caldecott winner intrigues me! I will definitely be picking this up, as well as adding it to my classroom library in the future! Using this book as a RA to teach students about patience is definitely a great idea! 4w
DrSpalding While I like the idea of having YouTube read aloud‘s, I also want to emphasize that the children need to hear you reading to them. Nice alignment to universal design and English learner strategies. (edited) 5d

I don't know if I'm really a fan of this book just because it's so repetitive about the animals waiting for whatever it is that they're waiting on. I guess it teaches children to have patience, though.

This fantasy fiction book by Kevin Henkes was a Theodore Suess Giles Honor Book and Caldacott Honor. I think this book would be great for kindergarten or 1st grade. I think that it teaches kids that if you want something sometimes you have to wait for it to happen. I feel like this book also teaches kids not to judge someone by their outside appearances because you never know what is going on with them on the inside. #ucflae3414f19
