My Favorite Children's Book Author: Kevin Henkes

kevin Henkes, author, robin king photographyAs many of you know, I love books. Read 'em. Write 'em. Collect 'em. I know our society is moving into a digital age and I love technology, but there's something about books that makes me happy. About 15 years ago I discovered this fabulous children's book author and illustrator, Kevin Henkes. His fun and quirky books teach lessons and usually make my kids and I laugh.

My favorite of his books is Julius, the Baby of the World where the main character, Lilly, learns to appreciate her new baby brother when she has to stand up for him.

Several of his books have mice as the main characters, including Lilly, which was the feature character at the Children's Book Festival this year.
