From the Inside Flap

(back cover)
We all remember those once-in-a-lifetime days when a milestone event transformed the world--such as JFK's assassination, the first lunar landing, the Tiananmen Square Massacre, and 9/11. You now hold in your hands a comprehensive record of those life-changing moments. Authoritatively compiled by historians, scientists, and journalists, 1001 Days That Shaped the World is an essential guide to the most extraordinary days humankind has known. Each of those days has formed the mindset of a culture, the history of a country, or the shape of a region. This fascinating guide is perfect for everyone who wishes to discover more about the triumphs and disasters that have shaped our world.

(front flap)
Certain days mark turning points in the world as we know it. Most people who were alive at the time will remember where they were when Martin Luther King was assassinated, or when the Berlin Wall fell. Such events define the end of one era and the beginning of another, marking transitions that help us map out the ebb and flow of human history.

You now hold in your hands a comprehensive guide to those extraordinary moments, written by respected figures from the fields of science, history, and journalism. Each entry features a detailed account of an epochal event, along with an informed assessment of its cultural and social impact.

Selected from events covering a vast expanse of time, 1001 Days That Shaped the World is history told through key moments, decisive encounters, memorable incidents, and disastrous events, whether triggered by human action or brought about by nature. Each event featured in this book has formed the mindset of a culture, the history of a country, or the shape of a region.

Amazing photographs, incisive text, and revealing quotations make this book an essential guide to the events that have shaped the world as it exists today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, light read. March 6 2012
By Heidi Grange - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
In this book, Henkes introduces us to a new character, a character just as interesting and unique as Owen or Lily, a character who loves to sing. Penny arrives home from school wanting to sing her song for her family. After both mom and dad interrupt her performance to remind her that the babies are sleeping and she needs to be quiet, Penny determines to sing her song for herself. But she discovers that singing to herself is just not the same as singing for someone else. She searches her room for someone to perform for without success. Finally, her parents come to her rescue and Penny gets to sing her song.

This is a fun story of self-confidence and finding joy in the simple things. It distinctly reminds me of a girl at my school who invents and shares songs at the drop of a hat. This is one of the things I love about working with young children, they are so unselfconscious and so willing to share and they still get excited about simple things. In typical Henkes fashion the illustrations are bright and cheerful and welcoming. I would be surprised if this book doesn't inspire readers to create their own songs, in fact that would be a fun activity to do with this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute - but now what I was expecting March 2 2012
By IndyMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that I LOVE Kevin Henkes! I was so excited when I found out he had a new mouse book. This book is very cute. It is a nice story, and the illustrations are beautiful, as always. My problem is that I was wanting a Kevin Henkes mouse book, and this was just a nice Kevin Henkes picture book. The best part about the mouse books, in my opinion, is that there is such a strong, dominant protagonist with a vibrant, unique personality. The story really revolves around each mouse's personality, and they become characters that my children (and I) grow to love and feel a connection to. Penny, though a cute little mouse, has no real personality. But, all in all, it is a lovely book with a very sweet story. I still enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delight for new readers March 16 2012
By Great Kid Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Young children will delight in Kevin Henkes' first book for beginning readers. They will relate to Penny and the way she just wants her parents to listen to her. But most of all, they will delight in singing Penny's song themselves, in bringing alive Henkes' simple words. The illustrations, in softly bright watercolors and clear black ink, support the text on each page. The variety of spot art, half page boxes, and some sequential small boxes adds variety, integrating the illustrations with the text. While Penny will remind readers of Henkes' outgoing Lily, Penny is her own character, singing her own song.

This book is perfect for new readers who enjoy simple, sweet family stories. It has delighted several of our 1st graders. I just wish I could capture the way they sang Penny's song for themselves. This won't draw readers who want a big laugh or lots of action. But it will bring a lot of pleasure to a quiet kid.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Lilly you will love Penny March 13 2012
By Melissa Sack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Penny is a sweet little mouse that has made up a new song. She can't wait to share it with her family. Her parents don't want her to sing because they are afraid it will wake her siblings. After dinner Penny is finally allowed to sing her song and before long the whole family is joining in.
This is a sweet new character from Kevin Henkes. Fans of his work should give it a try.

My wife is a teacher and when she saw these stories she had to have them for our granddaughter who will join the family next month. Yes, it will be a while before Penny will be able to read them herself, but she has three cousins and two brothers who will soon be reading these and many other books to her.
