Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Henry saw a sign in a store window announcing a snowman contest in the park. He raced home with Mudge to tell his Dad and to see if they could enter the contest. His Dad was busy painting a chair and from the looks of things, he had more paint on himself than on the chair. When Saturday came, they were off to the park, and Mudge had a particularly good time visiting with the other dogs. Henry and his Dad had a plan and their snowman was one that brought laughs and a prize. Another charming vignette in the lives of Henry and Mudge.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-This charming adventure is the 19th installment of the classic beginning-to-read series by Cynthia Rylant (S&S, 1999). Henry and his Dad, and his big dog Mudge, enter a snowman contest in the park. The topic, pace, and humorous conclusion of this high-interest tale will satisfy readers and listeners alike. The female narrator speaks slowly and clearly, making it easy for beginning readers to follow along. The narration is supported by wintry-sounding music and appropriately subtle sound effects. Using the book and tape together promotes independent reading and is an entertaining way to improve reading skills. The ten-minute length is good for limited attention spans and provides a sense of accomplishment when completed. Youngsters will want to listen to the tape and read along again and again, each time becoming a bit more confident. This is an excellent production for pre-readers and beginning readers.-Maura Smith, Somerset Elementary School, Prairie Village, KS Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

When I stumbled upon the Henry and Mudge series as an educator, I was ecstatic. Not only did I find a terrific series that first and second graders could read and relate to, but I found a series where the author, Cynthia Rylant, shows gentleness, kindness, love, and sincere appreciation for family and friends through the actions of a young boy and his dog. As the grandmother of a two-year old, I have introduced her to Henry and his big dog, Mudge. Every time I see her, she asks me if I have any more Henry and Mudge books! Needless to say, I've begun collecting this series for her!!! She loves them as much as I do!!
