From the Publisher
Praise for Harcourt's Green Light Readers:

Children's Literature - Traci Avalos
Every child longs for a pet, but Daniel's pet has a special surprise! Follow Daniel as he learns how to take care of Jen the hen, even as her family grows. The illustrations are warm and inviting, and children will be able to relate to Daniel's love and care of his pet. There are many special features in this book, including comprehension and critical thinking questions, an art activity for readers to create their own baby chick, and even tips to help parents encourage their children to become better readers. This is a great book choice for children learning both English and Spanish, particularly because it promotes critical thinking, provides readers with an opportunity to retell the story, and uses a subject that children across cultures can relate to. This picture book is fully bilingual in English and Spanish, and is a part of the leveled Green Light Readers collection. Reviewer: Traci Avalos
