PreS-Gr 3—Henry can not stand still. This is a problem, since herons must stand still in order to hunt for food. One day he becomes separated from his family at the pond. When he gets hungry, he realizes, "I can do this, I can catch myself something to eat." After several failed yet amusing attempts, he meets "THE GREAT BLUE HERON, the heron of all herons," who teaches him a trick, and the impatient Henry learns to stand still. Love's simple text imparts an important lesson, while Wald's fun, playful, yet realistic illustrations complement the narrative. Fact boxes and information about herons are appended. Lesson plans, quizzes, and additional support are all available through the publisher's Web site.—Michele Sealander, Hamburg School, NJ
