More games, more races, more tickles, more books—little Henry can’t get enough! When a toddler is armed with that useful word and the world is full of brand-new things, his family just doesn’t stand a chance. Follow Henry on his exhausting and all-too-familiar day filled with play . . . and a lot of love! Buoyant rhymes and charming illustrations strike a heartwarming note that will ring true with families of energetic little ones.

Praise For Henry Wants More!

The concept of an energetic child tiring out his entire family is not new in picture books, but Ashman and Hughes have created one that is particularly memorable…The pastel palette adds softness to the tale, and a minimal background keeps the focus on this multiracial, intergenerational family whose appeal is universal and warmth apparent.” —Booklist starred review
