Kimberly Wilson grew up with a butterfly trapper keeper full of stories, an overflowing bookshelf, and a pocket thesaurus. But it took many years, and a couple careers, before she pursued her dream of writing for children.
A lover of puns and wordplay, Kimberly enjoys mixing humor, heart, and educational details into her writing. Her picture book, A PENNY’S WORTH, illustrated by Mark Hoffman, debuts with Page Street Kids in 2022.
In her free time, Kimberly enjoys school visits, volunteer work with literacy nonprofits, tennis, and yoga. Even though her trapper keeper is long gone, her book collection continues to multiply, and her thesaurus…now there’s an app for that!

A Penny's Worth
Page Street Kids, April 5, 2022
Penny's, worthless? Non-cents!
Hot off the minting press, Penny feels like a million bucks. But as other coins and bills are spent while she sits forgotten, she begins to doubt her value. She is too small to slot-surf with Quarter. Even penny candy sells for a dime! Refusing to be short-changed, she sets out to find her purpose at any cost.
Readers will laugh at the wealth of money puns, learn a basic lesson on US currency, and discover that self-worth is truly priceless.
A PENNY'S WORTH hits the shelves April 5, 2022 and is available for presale now.
