Finding Things is an invitation to find joy in the simple things that are all around, for those who know how to notice them.

Henkes and Dronzek’s collaborations are always exceptional, full of vivid and deceptively simple observations of the world around us. Finding Thingsfeatures succinct text and exquisite, emotionally rich illustrations. It encourages readers to be creative and to find purpose and connections in what surrounds them. A terrific read-aloud to treasure and share, as well as a great title for visual literacy and emerging readers, Finding Things is also a wonderful choice for social and emotional learning.

Kevin Henkes’s books have earned him multiple Caldecott Medals and Newbery Honors, and he has received the Children’s Literature Legacy Award for his lasting contribution to literature for children. He is the author of more than fifty books, including titles such as Kitten’s First Full Moon, The Year of Billy Miller, and Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse.
