"Andrew Henry's Meadow" was in my childhood book collection. At that time I enjoyed it, but was also somewhat disappointed that it didn't accurately reflect what a child could build. As I got older, I appreciated the book for its imagination.
I'm glad the book has been republished, however my childhood version was a larger format that better conveyed the awesome illustrations. ( )

An old childhood favorite, and it lives up to the passing of years! I love the idea behind this, what kid hasn't wanted to sneak off and create their own little city? I love how each house fits the oocupant, and the illustrations are simple and yet also complicated! I love it. ( )

Growing up, when Mom said it was time for bed and asked my brother and I what we wanted her to read, we each were allowed to pick out a book. Andrew Henry's Meadow was always a favorite choice of mine. When I had children of my own, I shared my own beloved copy of AHM.

My daughter and I were looking through the books we purchased tonight for my grandson and we began to talk about books that were her favorite when she was a young child. Andrew Henry's Meadow was one she loved as much as I did. Many years have passed since my days of reading/enjoying Andrew Henry's Meadow. I had forgotten about the wonderful illustrations and the amazing inventions that I had so loved as a little girl and in turn, read to my own.

Love that book and now I am on a mission to locate a NEW COPY for my grandson. Share it with your children. They WILL love it, too. ( )

A reissue of a delightful story originally published in 1965 about a highly precocious, amazingly inventive young boy. ( )
