grandma's bookshelf - Handa's Hen!

Handa's Hen 
By - Eileen Browne
Publisher - Candlewick Press
Ages - 3-7

Favorite Features -
  • beautiful, colorful illustrations
  • fun counting story
  • encourages counting, numbers, animal/creature recognition and finding something special
  • Notes to Parents and Teachers
What an enjoyable and different counting story! I love the deep, rich colors and the "suspense" in this story and how Handa takes us along on her search for grandma's one, black hen. As you enjoy this book with your grandchildren, be sure to talk about each of the creatures Handa finds, how the creatures move and what sounds they make. Ask the children which creature is their favorite and remind them God created them all!
