Henry likes most things about first grade—except for reading, that is. Everyone else loves to read; classmate Tony can even read upside down! But when Henry is called on in class, he freezes. His teacher soon discovers that it’s not that Henry doesn’t like reading, it’s that he can’t. After some extra help at school and at home, Henry begins to feel more confident about words and letters. And when he and his little brother desperately want to know the ending to a new book, Henry may just save the day!

Nancy Carlson’s bibliotherapeutic story and friendly illustrations will offer struggling readers some much-needed support.
