Top customer reviews
Andrew Henry's Meadow is just such a book. Andrew Henry is the middle child. With two older sister's and two younger brother's, he has unique interests and unlike his siblings, has no one to enjoy them with. Content with his own company, he creates wonderful and thoughtful inventions. The problem is-his efforts are under appreciated. Bothered by his family's unhappiness with his efforts, he goes off to build his own home, where he does what he enjoys to his heart's content.
Soon, a village of many misunderstood youngsters are housed in his meadow. It seems, some parents aren't tolerating their pastimes either. Four days pass, and frantic parents search for their "missing" children.
It all ends with a happy reunion and with the understanding, that while we may not all have the same interests, we must respect and allow others to enjoy theirs.
A wonderful book about tolerance and understanding. Great read.
