I was a big fan of this series as a kid. I would keep a few of these tucked somewhere in my classroom for emerging readers at the earlier grades. ( )

I have a lot of respect for Henry's mom. In some ways I want to be her, with a big porch & yard & trees, and long dresses and bare feet - but I don't want a huge slobbery dog, thank you. ( )

Henry and Mudge are best buds. Young kids love these books because they can actually read the words on their own! The adventure is simple, but fun enough for little ones. ( )

There are several reasons I like the book “Henry and Mudge: The First Book.” Henry, a young boy who feels lonely without any friends, finds friendship in a dog named Mudge. First, each chapter informs the reader more about each character. The characters are believable and well-developed. For example, “Mudge was short because he is a puppy, he’ll grow! When he was done growing he weighed 180 pounds!” Second, the plot is full of great suspense with a conflict-resolution. When Mudge gets lost, Henry goes to look for him. Once they find each other, they promise to never run away from each other again. Third, this book is the first in the series! Children can grow to love the characters and be interested in reading many more. The big idea of this story is about companionship, friendship, and love. ( )
