Kevin Henkes Never Disappoints! 4 Aug. 2000
By Roz Levine - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Poor Wemberly, she worries about everything...big, little and in between. And what she's worried about most, is her first day of nursery school. Never fear, her teacher, Miss Peachum, knows just how she feel and introduces her to Jewel. Jewel worries about everything too. No one understands and expresses a child's feelings better than Kevin Henkes. His writing is true to life with a simple, gentle message. His illustrations, detailed and very expressive and best of all, he lets your pre-schooler know...You're not alone out there. This is a terrific new story you youngster(s) will want to hear again and again and a great addition to all home libraries.

Another winner from Kevin Henkes 27 July 2000
By christy - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Poor little Wemberley worries about everything! And her first day in kindergarten is quickly approaching. This, of course, is very worrisome for Wemberley, but she soon finds that school isn't so intimidating. This is the newest book from Henkes, who also wrote Julius, Baby of the World, which I love. If you have a small child who worries frequently, or if you have a child who is frightened by the prospect of entering school, this would be a great book for you. The illustrations are vivid and typical of all of Henkes books; I especially love the bright yellow cover! I would recommend it for ages 3 and up- it's not too wordy to read to the tiny ones. A great book!

A Pleasure to read for both parent and child 1 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kevin Henkes is one of my daughters favorite authors, and I have to say, for the under 5 reading I have to do, he's one of mine too, especially after reading this book. I bought it especially because my daughter, like Wemberly, is very worried about starting her new school. When she heard Wemberly was worried about that, she said "I'm worried about that too, Mommy." Right then, I knew I had bought a great book. We read it over and over and it gives her great comfort to know that she is not the only child who worries. The best thing is Wemberly gets to school and makes a new friend. The experience is positive and all the things that she worried about did not happen. This is a great message for all kids (I think it's rare that a four year old child would not worry about certain things). Aside from a great message, the story has good humor and Henkes wonderful illustrations. I am so glad I got this book for my daughter, we read it at least 4 times before bed each night. Happy reading.

Kudos to Kevin Henkes, he's done it again! 26 July 2000
By Gretchen Scott - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Add Wemberly to the long list of Kevin Henkes' loveable characters. She worries about lots of things, but finds in the end, that her biggest worry (SCHOOL!) is nothing to worry about. Children of all ages will identify with Wemberly's knack for concern, but will enjoy experiencing the lovely way the adults in her life help her cope. Thank you Kevin Henkes, for another book about real feelings disguised in adorable entertainment.

A totally delightful picturebook tale! 16 Aug. 2000
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
In Kevin Hanks thoroughly charming picturebook Wimberly Worried, Wemberly the mouse worries about everything, all the time, everywhere. Even though her parents and her friends try to reassure her and tell her not to worry. Kevin Henkes deftly writes and colorfully illustrates a delightful little picturebook tale will thoroughly entertain young readers even as it assures them that they, too, need never worry about everything, all the time. Other highly recommended "mouse" books by Kevin Henkes for young readers include Lily's Purple Plastic Purse; Owen; Chrysanthemum; Julius, The Baby Of The World; Chester's Way; Sheila Rae, The Brave; and A Weekend With Wendell.
