A series of small, friendly episodes from Henry's day let the reader into his cuddly, warm world. Everything he does, everyone he sees, and everything that happens to him is happy and loving. And he ends his day with a final grand act of generosity. He wakes up to the aroma of blueberry muffins baking, not for breakfast, he learns, but for his school lunch. His mom packs his lunch, gives a muffin to his friend, and they start off to school together. Both before school and throughout the day, one good healthy interaction after another builds toward the final moment when Henry gives his muffin to Chloe.
