Author Study: Kevin Henkes

For the past 30 years Kevin Henkes has been writing and illustrating children's books. It is his job, he thinks he has the best job in the whole world, what he creates ends up in different libraries, schools and households all over the world for all to enjoy. Henkes understands that books are often a child's first exposure to art, which is what pushes him to continue to illustrate his books. Follow Henkes beautiful work in this month's Story Walk.
