    This was a nice read. My children liked it and it opened opportunities for conversation on Jesus being the Ultimate Friend that will never leave us and wants to walk through our days with us. He is faithful to lead us to the friends He wants us to befriend for Kingdom purposes. And along the way He is beyond amazing to know us intimately and add blessings to our lives in the way of pets and critters. We have had our fair share over the years and we count each one a blessing. I really loved the author's way of descriptive/creative one-of-a-kind searches. They had us laughing out loud! Pick this one up and read it to your littles.

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    Henry Hodges Needs a Friend is a humorous rhyming book of how a boy and man's best friend get together. It's a cute story in rhyming meter on friendship. Henry dreams of what would make the best friend....goldfish with antlers, goat with 10 legs or maybe a short-necked giraffe. If it can be dreamed of Henry probably thought of it. Kids of all ages will love this book. Pet adoption is theme of this book.

    If you're looking for a cute, entertaining story to read to your kids this would be a wonderful choice. If you're looking for a book with a strong message for your children, I feel this one missed the boat. While the illustrations are colorful and engaging, I feel the overall message could have been delivered in a stronger manner. My children loved it. They were delighted with all the funny pets and the rhythmic rhyme of the story. There were many laughs and chuckles as I read the book aloud, so I must say it was an entertaining book.

    I had great expectations for this story! The illustrations were appealing and the theme seemed like it would be very interesting. My problems come in with Andy's parents and the dose of theology that Andrews includes. You finish the book feeling like you're special and because you're special you'll get special things. That was the reason why Andy's parents wanted to get him a "one-of-a-kind" pet. BUT, we all know that that's not how it always works out. Some children never do get what they "need" or even NEED. Does that mean that God isn't there or doesn't care or _____? Absolutely not! But, books like this could be super discouraging and possibly even damaging to a child who is faced with a life like that.

    If he had left God out of it, I probably would have been willing to share this book simply because there would have been room for discussion. Since God is brought into this story , I just can't promote something that could change the way a child thinks about God in a way that will cause them to doubt Him.

    *I received a review copy of this book from the publisher. All thoughts are my own!

    Several years back I had the privilege of hearing Andy Andrews speak and I have never forgotten it. What an amazing man who loves God and has been gifted with so much talent. When I discovered a children's book written by Andy ~I just knew I had to get this book for my grandchildren.

    Oh my stars~ it is just adorable. Henry Hodges is a lonely little boy who lives on a dead-end street. He has no friends who live on his street and he longs for a friend. After dreaming of many little friends he may someday meet he gets a true friend ~ a dog named Hap. In this sweet little story Andy teaches the importance of how much we need friends and that they need us.

    It is beautifully illustrated! I loved this book and can't wait to share it with my grand babies.
