If you’ve ever read Kevin Henkes’ book Chrysanthemum, then you know about the importance of names.
The power and pride that comes with names is part of what motivated TeachingBooks to create a collection of brief recordings of author and illustrators saying their names. We call it the Author Name Pronunciation Guide.
Author/illustrator Kevin Henkes himself has a name that sometimes gets mangled in its pronunciation.
And now–thanks to his generous cooperation and the power of technology–you can listen to Kevin Henkes pronounce his own name!
