A Friend for Henry
A Schneider Family Book Award Honor Book
In Classroom Six, second left down the hall, Henry has been on the lookout for a friend. A friend who shares. A friend who listens. Maybe even a friend who likes things to stay the same and all in order, as Henry does. But on a day full of too close and too loud, when nothing seems to go right, will Henry ever find a friend—or will a friend find him? With insight and warmth, this heartfelt story from the perspective of a boy on the autism spectrum celebrates the everyday magic of friendship.
This is a picture book that gently and deftly captures what it's like for an autistic child to make friends in a new classroom. It's a book that listens to them. - Kirkus Reviews
