Henry's mother baked blueberry muffins for him to eat at school. On his way there he runs into a football player who has a sister that goes to Henry's school. Her name is Chloe. Henry knows who she is. In fact, he thought "she was the loveliest girl in his classes." At recess Henry tried to impress Chloe. He did a forward roll for her. She did a cartwheel in return. This only made Henry like her more. When they returned to the classroom, the teacher changed the seating arrangements and of course Chloe's new seat was right next to Henry. After they changed the seating it was time for snack. Chloe had a carrot and Henry had the blueberry muffin his mother had baked. Henry gave the muffin to Chloe and he ate the carrot.

This story is cute. It could be used not necessarily to talk about love but to talk about friendship with children. In the book,Henry did something nice for Chloe so it could bed used to teach lessons about helping your neighbor or being friendly to people. The illustrations in the book went well with the text. They weren't the most exciting pictures but they served the purpose. Overall the book was not exceptional but it could still have use in classrooms or a childrens' library.
