Henry's family went to Great-Grandpa Bill's house to play with the great-grandpas. Henry and the great-grandpas played card games and the great-grandpas took a nap on Mudge, but he didn't mind. Then, they played checker games with Henry. After that, Henry and Mudge went hiking and found a pond. Henry asked if they could go swimming in the pond and everyone went swimming in their skivvies.
My favorite part of the story is when Henry plays card games with the grandpas because it looks fun. My favorite character is Henry because he is a cool boy. This story relates to my life because I like to visit my grandpa because he is funny. The pictures help tell the story.
I think others should read this story because it is sweet and nice.
