Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Mama hen has been sitting on siX eggs and suddenly five hatch, but the siXth slips out of the nest and rolls away. A madcap chase ensues with one animal after another joining mama as she chases after the runaway egg. The simple teXt is greatly enhanced by Ernst's humorous illustrations. Mama hen's farmyard friends show their dismay and joy when she is finally reunited with her newest family member. A level 2 reader (grades 12) in the "Green Light Reader" series. 1999, Harcourt, $10.95 and $3.95. Ages 6 to 8. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot <%ISBN%> 0152023372
Library Journal
Gr 1-2-Three serviceable easy-readers. Repetitive phrases and picture clues make these titles accessible to children, while sophisticated vocabulary ("boastful") and the use of similes ("soft as silk") add interest and challenge. Each story has a simple plot (animals chase an egg as it rolls through the farmyard, a lost cat comes back with her new kittens, and a bragging kangaroo gets its comeuppance) and all three have large, bright, cartoon illustrations. A "Meet the Author" section inside the back cover is an added feature.-Anne Knickerbocker, Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
