The story teaches old-fashioned gender roles: the boys play football, stare at the pretty girls, and give up their snacks to flirt.

The look of McCarty's characters is quite special. The illustrations are reminiscent of two children's classics. Henry and his classmates, all animals, recall the characters from Rosemary Wells' Max and Ruby books, but with smaller eyes and a less cartoony demeanor.

The illustrations are charming, but the story is less so. Good for about one read-through with my 4-year old.

Sweet book with very simple pictures. Touches upon sharing and the innocence of making new friends of the opposite sex.
