A Glorious Day

Illustrated by Amy Schwartz

Henry's day is full.

From breakfast to bedtime there is fun with his friends in their small red brick building.

There are steps out front to count climbing up and to count coming down.

On the street there's the garbage man and a tow truck to watch.
And just around the corner there's a playground and even more friends.

Fullness makes Henry's day (and every day for Henry) simply GLORIOUS.
