Henry Hodges Needs a Friend - Children's Book Review and Giveaway

I received book for review from Tommy Nelson.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
Book Synopsis:

At some point, almost every child struggles with feeling like they don’t fit in or are left out—just like Henry Hodges. Henry is a lonely little boy on a lonely little street who longs for a friend. One day, his mother and father take him to a pet rescue shelter and his lonely world is changed! Told in a playful rhyme with adorable illustrations, this book will be a favorite among children and parents who love dogs and, ultimately, will comfort and encourage children who struggle with feeling accepted and finding friends.

My Review:

Henry Hodges is a boy who had no one that lived nearby and he didn't like toys.  When his parents tell him he can get a pet he starts to wonder what kind of pet it will be.  He dreams up giraffes with short necks, cats that bark, and other odd animals.  He then goes to an animal shelter and spots a dog with a sad face.  He adopts it and names it Hap (short for Happy).  They become fast friends, and Henry learns that God knows just what we need if we're lonely or sad.

A hardcover book with 32 pages, Henry Hodges Needs a Friend is a charming story with a flowing cadence and cute illustrations.

Win It!
