Penny by Peter Davidson
The life of a penny.
Have you ever held a penny and thought about all the places that it has been? Especially an old penny. When I was a kid, when I would clean my room and, half the time, throw a penny in the trash if I saw it on my floor! I've often wondered how many kids have done that and how many pennies are in dumps and landfills.
Well, this story basically follows a 1982, 95% copper penny. You read several stories of the people that had the penny, ways it was spent (or stolen), times it was dropped or discarded, and many more. There may not be many people like me who have literally looked at a penny and wondered where it has been, but clearly Peter Davidson is one. And, honestly, even if you have never wondered it before, you will enjoy this book and it will make you think a little each time you hold a penny in your hand.
