Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Minerva Louise, that lovable hen, is back. This time she is investigating the changes around the farmhouse. First she sights a fancy "wheelbarrow" that looks just like a baby carriage. She is convinced that the crib is a rabbit cage, and is delighted to see a bunny in the "wheelbarrow." It is the toy next to the baby in the carriage. This happy, upbeat new baby story is sure to elicit giggles from the preschool set. The large, clear illustrations by the author are a perfect accompaniment to the text. There are plenty of visual clues for the young listener who will eagerly point out Minerva Louise's errors. The changes from page to page provide material for discussion between parent and child. The title itself sets the positive tone of the story. Those who are not familiar with the previous Minerva Louise titles will want to get acquainted.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1--A curious hen views the world from her farmyard perspective, missing all of the clues that her humans have a new baby. A silly sit-com for the youngest set. (Nov.)
Kirkus Reviews
Another adventure of the amiable, feather-brained hen (Minerva Louise at School, 1996, etc.) relies on the same premise as its predecessors: Minerva Louise visits a strange environment—this time a household where there is a new baby—but her perceptions are entirely bound by the limits of her barnyard experiences. Seeing an empty crib, she identifies it as a rabbit hutch and begins searching for the "new bunny" that must live there. And Minerva always manages to find what she's looking for in the end—much to the delight of listeners who have been laughing all along at her blithe efforts to make sense of the world by force-fitting it into the only categories she knows. Large, simple shapes and bold, flat colors inside soft black outlines are composed into pictures as light-hearted and charming as the tale.
