Henry Wants More!

A toddler continually demands “More!” and “Again” so that his family members will repeat his favorite activities. Dad swings him overhead. Grandma plays his favorite song on the piano. His brother pulls him in a wagon, and so forth. The exhausted crew are all relieved when Henry finally falls asleep after his mom reads aloud book after book, but she can’t resist tiptoeing back for one more kiss. Each member of this interracial family interacts with Henry in an age-appropriate manner, and the rhyming text sets up a pattern that makes this a good choice for reading aloud. (Ages 2–4)
