Overview

When you are alone, you can do all sorts of things — pretend you are tiny (or enormous), hear things other people can't hear, and see things they can't see. Being alone is fine — sometimes.

Kevin Henke's first book makes it clear that he remembers his own childhood and respects that time in others. His remarkable paintings have a life and luminescense that are unforgettable.

When you live alone you can do anything you want to do and see anything you want to see. You realize that not everyone thinks like you or acts like you. Great book to show children that not everyone is the same.

This book is about a boy enjoy his time being all alone. This would be a good book for students who like to be alone, or to help students realize the peace and joy of taking time to think and be alone.

Being alone can be a time of self-exploration. In this book, Kevin Henkes depicts being alone as a positive experience rather than a negative one. By themselves, children can learn more about who they are, what they like to think about, and where their imagination can take them.
