Henri scissors
The Soccer Fence
Phil Bildner

The theme is hope because the boy keeps hoping that he can play soccer on the field. When the ball came flying his way behind the fence he came running to get it jumped and caught it and gave it back. When the boy asked them if you could play on the other side of the fence they did not say anything back. After all the boy in the blond hair boy ask him if you wanted to play with them. My opinion is always let people play with you.

I think the theme is fairness because the boy and the papa were playing a game but 2-3 whole months later papa came back. Segregation was almost here! When the boy and his papa were playing a weird game called knock knock one day his papa did not come back he left a note on his desk but 2 months later papa responded back which really surprised him! He was still really sad though then his papa came back 1 week later. This book makes me feel sad because his papa left and waited 2-3 months then ha came back.

Henri's Scissors
Jeanette Winter

The theme is hopeful because he was so ile he couldn't travel he had to wait until he was strong enough to travel. When Henri was a young boy he wanted to paint like his mom. When Henri was not ile no more in stead of panting he cut with scissors. Even though he couldn't not pant he could draw and make artwork.
