BUYING ADVISORY: Pre-K, EL (K-3) - ADVISABLE
AUDIENCE APPEAL: AVERAGE
Henry Bear's parents are not average parents. They act very immature causing Henry Bear to worry. At school, Henry Bear meets Marjani, a new friend. He invites her to his birthday dinner that night and explains the importance of his birthday wish.
Children will enjoy this cute story and like the immaturity of the parents. The character development of Marjani was awkward and could have been developed more.
