Sweet Book Summary:
Henry thinks Chloe is the loveliest girl in the class. In the beginning of the story, Henry and Chloe interact in ways children are sure to relate to: they show off to each other, he with his front roll, her with her cartwheel. The rest is the universal activity of chasing, which clearly means they are sweet on each other. After lunch they get back to class, and the teacher decides to move their seats, and as luck would have it, Henry is seated right next to Chloe. When afternoon snack comes, Henry pulls out his much savored blueberry muffin that he saved from his lunch and promptly gives it to Chloe and takes her carrot. If that's not love...
