Penny The Forgotten Coin

Penny The Forgotten CoinFound by a young boy and placed into his pocket for safekeeping, Penny feels useless compared to the exciting Superball, the shiny Marble, the adventuresome Rock, and the colorful Bubblegum. But as she reminisces about her life and history, she realizes her worth, and it is reinforced by the young boy’s need for her in an important decision.

 

Review:

“This is the best ‘dual’ picture book I have read. The concept is still novel in and of itself-having two stories going on at once for different ages-and the story and pictures make the book simply wonderful. Highly Recommended.”
