Meet Henrietta, an extremely active, imaginative, and very busy girl. She loves chocolate ripple cake, her best friend, Olive Higgie, and being a Great Go-Getter. She doesn't like waiting, lentil soup, and brussels sprouts.

This year is full of firsts for this charming adventurer. Henrietta will be attending school for the very first time. She goes on her first sleepover at her new best friend's house. And most exciting of all, she is getting a brand-new sister or brother. Or is her new puppy even more exciting than a new baby? I don't think Henrietta has decided yet!

'Sheeza Mageeza!', exclaims Henrietta! There is a lot going on in this book. Like Henrietta, your five to seven year-old reader will learn so much. Patience is one of the many lessons the reader will learn. Henrietta must learn patience while awaiting her family's new arrival. The Great Go-Getter will also show readers how to handle jealousy and disappointment.

Henrietta teaches young readers so many important and relevant life lessons in a this super fun and exciting chapter book that has adorably funny illustrations. She can help teach readers how to make new friends, that it is okay to be scared on the first day of school, and that disappointments can turn into the best surprises of all.
