“Relatable characters, familiar scenarios, and gentle humor make this a remarkably satisfying read.” —Horn Book Magazine, Starred Review 

From the creators of the Schneider Award-winning books A Friend for Henry and Henry, Like Always comes a delightful beginning chapter book about embracing new experiences, starring a sweet and sensitive child on the autism spectrum.

It’s Field Trip Day! Henry's class is excited to visit the museum, but Henry is not so sure. The museum means maybe seeing dinosaurs, Henry's favorite. But it also means a lot of things that are new: a noisy school bus ride, a building full of echoes and hallways, and plenty of chances to get lost! Will he find something that makes all of this new worth the trip? Come along with Henry in this funny, bighearted tale about trying new things, exploring new places, and finding the courage to make yourself heard.

JUST RIGHT FOR BEGINNING READERS: With short chapters and simple text, this book is perfect for newly independent readers who are just moving on to longer books.

FIRST FIELD TRIP: This story will encourage and reassure any child beginning school or preparing to embark on their first field trip as Henry navigates the excitement (and potential anxiety) that comes with doing new things for the first time.
