All is fair in love and kindergarten....The exquisite cream-colored pages bring richness to the presentation that makes readers want to turn each page. This beautiful book should appeal to the little ones who have a special someone in their lives but dare not say a word about it
— School Library Journal (starred review)

McCarty nails several aspects of grade-school life (Henry demonstrates his “best forward roll” to impress Chloe) and loads his compact sentences with meaning and longing. This gentle, pitch-perfect romance will have readers’ hearts thumping with the thrill of first love.
— Publishers Weekly (starred review)

A perfect Valentine’s Day read and a fine picture book about love and friendship the rest of the year. Henry in Love not only illuminates the freshness of a burgeoning friendship in the elementary school set, McCarty’s light-handedness evidences an even deeper love for the ordinary world.
— Boston Globe

With precise figures placed in vignettes on a gorgeous creamy stock, McCarty tells a sweetly simple, utterly sincere schoolyard love story.
