Publisher's Summary

In Classroom Six, second left down the hall, Henry has been on the lookout for a friend. A friend who shares. A friend who listens. Maybe even a friend who likes things to stay the same and all in order, as Henry does. But on a day full of too close and too loud, when nothing seems to go right, will Henry ever find a friend—or will a friend find him? With insight and warmth, this heartfelt story from the perspective of a boy on the autism spectrum celebrates the everyday magic of friendship.

I love the unique perspective this story is told from and the way that both the text and illustrations convey that perspective in a way that's relatable and creates empathy for Henry's point of view, and the opportunity it provides to teach other children how it may feel to have autism. Plus it's a great little story about making friends!
