A beginning chapter book series based on the award-winning picture book, A Friend for Henry!

Henry likes Classroom Ten. He likes how it is always the same. But this week, Henry's class will have a parade, and a parade means having Share Time on the wrong day. A parade means playing instruments that are too loud. A parade means this week is not like always.

Join Henry as he navigates the ups and downs of marker missiles, stomach volcanoes, and days that feel a little too orange. From the creators of the Schneider Family Honor-winning picture book A Friend for Henry, this warmly funny book starring a child on the autism spectrum is a reassuring read for school-bound kids of all stripes.

Two-color illustrations were rendered in watercolor and ink.

Gr 1-4-Henry (A Friend for Henry!), who readers might infer is on the autism spectrum, likes his classroom and everything that's always there, especially the calendar that shows the day's activities. It's always the same. On Monday, Mrs. Tanaka announces that there is going to be a change to the schedule-a parade on Friday! Henry's not happy about it. He wants things to stay the same as always. On Tuesday, the class makes posters for the parade, and on Wednesday, they pick out their instruments. As the day of the parade arrives, Henry finds a way to participate in the event that allows him to stay true to himself. This book gives readers on the spectrum a chance to identify with Henry and offers readers who are not a glimpse of Henry's inner world. This will inspire and empower all children to find their own way to make any situation work for them. The beginning chapter book's illustrations are black and white with blue accents that will draw readers' eyes. Artwork features diverse characters of varied skin tones and facial features. VERDICT This title features a boy on the spectrum who finds a way to meet change and manage it; it's a great addition to any library's early chapter book collection.-Myiesha Speight?(c) Copyright 2011.
