This was one of my most favorite childhood reads. I still own my original book (it is a cherished friend) and loved being able to share it with my two sons, who are now teenagers. I am buying this for my young nephews and hope they enjoy the book as much we have over the years.

Andrew Henry has unique talents, just like each of us. Even with black & white illustrations, the details & emotions of each picture could tell the story! Like most boys his age, Andrew Henry loves to tinker and build things. However, his family doesn't appreciate all of his "inventions" so he decides he will live out his dreams in a meadow, where he will not bother his family. But he soon finds he is not alone, others with special gifts move into his meadow and soon the whole town notices they are missing their creative children....a reminder to all of us how important it is to allow each child to find a "place" in their family!

Since I ordered this book from the Weekly Reader Series in grade school in the early 1970s, Andrew Hentry's Meadow has been my very favorite book, above all others, including War and Peace, and the other masterpieces of literature. This book, its characters, and the intricately drawn contraptions and dwellings are so REAL. When I was a child the book prompted me to build all manner of huts, forts, and ramshackle dwellings to play and hide out in. Today, it still makes me feel the need to be creative, appreciate the differences in myself and others, and most especially, to find a "special place" that is just my own.

This was one of my childhood favorites, so glad to be able to share it with my sons. Great for creative planning of forts, living room tents, etc. Also for the importance of family even when members don't all agree, or seem to fit in. Wonderful illustrations!

When my son was about 6-7 he would try to to check this book out of the library every time we went there. He said it was the best book ever! I am so glad it came back out for it's anniversary. Although he is 24 now, he is finally going to get a copy of his very own this Christmas.

My sons fell in love with this book as young children. Both are now mid-teens ... and they still enjoy looking through this book. When they were younger, they enjoyed putting themselves into the story and thinking of the kind of house Andrew would build for them. When they now pick up the book, even though they say nothing aloud, I see the look in their eyes. Both have asked if they can have copies to read to their own children someday. That alone makes this book a 'winner' in my opinion. Until it came back into print we were scouring every used bookstore/yard sale, etc. we encountered, looking for more copies. I'm very happy to see it return to print for a new generation of children and 'children at heart' to enjoy.

I loved this book! I would look at it and dream of being in those places that he built. I always dreamed of building things. It was so motivating to drive me to create what other people wanted but didn't know how to do it for themselves. I couldn't remember the title. I remembered a swamp and I started looking for a book with swamp in the title. Then the word 'Meadow' popped in my head and then I found it. I can't wait to get a copy of it again to give my young boys.

This book is childhood on paper. I had long ago forgotten it, but something kept nagging me about a boy in a meadow building things for his friends... It took some time to recall enough to search for it, but it was well worth it. Andrew-Henrys Meadow is a real treat, I wish they would put it back into print (as I understand it Zach Brach of Scrubs and Garden State is currently writing a script of it, I can't wait to see the results!)

This was my absolute most favorite book as a child. I'm so glad it's still in circulation!

This book is so good, so imaginative, the illustrations are simple in materials, yet intricate in design and detail. The story is truly believable (well, most of it my boys thought!). When we found this gem in a used book store, we couldn't pass it up. Had been on the lookout for it for a year when we spotted it. If you have children, you'll enjoy this book as much as they will.
