Resource Description

In Henry’s family everyone is a die-hard hockey fan, except for Henry; he can outskate everyone in the family, but simply can’t handle a hockey stick. When he sees an ice dancing exhibition he finds his passion – he wants to be a figure skater, and with the support of his dad and grandma, he follows his dream. This heart-warming picture book for K-3, with its large, expressive illustrations, is a useful read-aloud to explore making non-stereotypical choices, finding one’s passion, and following one’s true self even if it’s tough. Useful addition for classroom or school libraries and for school counselors. Log in to read the full review.
