Book of the Week: Henry in Love

Henry in Love by Peter McCarty

Published: 2009 by Balzer + Bray

Reasons why I liked this book, and chose this book as book of the week:

It’s a sweet story about first love.

Unlike many children’s books, the illustrations are quite, humble even.

Henry, is a loveable character.

Even though I’m kind of weirded out by animals in clothes, McCarty’s book didn’t give me that weirded out feeling.

The illustrations weren’t only beautiful, but they were accurate. Chloe (Henry’s love interest) was a rabbit, and if you were to look closely you could see each piece of fur in his illustrations.

The blueberry muffin was bright blue in color.

I liked the message that sharing can bring people together.

Henry is quiet, but he’s courageous.

The writing is simple and strong and isn’t dependant of the illustrations.
