“Young Penny has a song of her own and wants to sing it for all to hear, but the babies are sleeping. What is she to do? Why sing, of course! One is nice, two is nice, Three is even better. Four is nice, five is nice, Six in rain is wetter. Yet another reason to love Henkes!”
— Lorna Ruby, Wellesley Books, Wellesley, MA

Description


When Penny comes home from school, she is ready to sing her song. But the babies are sleeping, and Mama and Papa are worried that Penny will wake them up. Oh, but it is a good song, a really wonderful song . . . and Penny wants more than anything to sing it.

What do you think will happen?
