THE LITTLE “READ” HEN IS HATCHED!
Dianne de Las Casas’ NEWEST book, The Little “Read” Hen, illustrated by the talented Holly Stone-Barker, is here! Join the clucky little hen as she tries to get her friends to help her write a story through the steps of brainstorming, researching, outlining, drafting, editing, and proofing (just like any reputable essay service does their job). She’s unflappable and doesn’t let her friends get her in a fowl mood. An EGG-cellent story for aspiring young writers! For fun book activities, click here.
“This fresh take on the traditional folktale gives youngsters sound advice on writing their own stories. Teachers will want to use this pun-filled tale in their writing lessons. Colorful cut-paper illustrations add to the humor.” - School Library Journal
