Henry Hodges Needs a Friend, by Andy Andrews, is a lovely book about a boy who is looking for a one-of-a kind friend. This sets his mind going into all the possibilities. His parents take him to a shelter, where he find just the perfect friend....a dog. Through this adventure, Henry learns how this new friend is also looking for someone to accept him and to give him a home. It is very touching and warm.
The illustrations reflect the variety of friends that Henry imagined. I loved this book. My one problem is on my Kindle Fire there were some issues with illustrations lining up with the story. Otherwise, this is a great book to share with little ones.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
