Once Around the Block

by Kevin Henkes
Illustrated by Victoria Chess

Published by Greenwillow, 1987
24 pages
ISBN: 0-688-04955-9

Ages 3 - 7

To each neighbor, Annie repeats her complaint that there's nothing to do, and at each stop she's offered something to occupy her time for a few minutes. A well-paced flow of drawings with watercolor wash and a text effectively utilizing repetition culminate in a new resolution of a familiar childhood dilemma.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
