...The book opens with a lovely note to the caregiver providing a gentle reminder about the significance of teaching both consequences and displaying love/affection to all children - especially the strong-willed ones. This story was crafted with love in a non-judgmental way that weaves in the balance of supporting our children in a healthy manner that does not crush their bold and brilliant spirits. It has been a springboard for subtly discussing valuable life lessons and sparked many questions (and possibly some introspection) from our little ones. We will be adding this gem to our regular rotation. Excellent book!

Henry Knows Best is an honest and encouraging look at the natural consequences of doing things your way without considering the thoughts of others. Henry's mom gently reminds him that being a good friend requires compromise and admitting when you've done something wrong. There is always another day to try again!
