The phonics focus of this book helps teachers looking for materials to fit specific lesson plans, but the stories never feel “educational”
Hen is wet. Hen’s eggs are wet.
“Help!” says Hen.
“I can help!” says Hen’s friend, Ben.
In the third Short Vowel Adventure from BraveMouse Books, Hen and her eggs are off on a wild, wet adventure, even though Hen is not the adventuresome sort. She would prefer to sit quietly in a warm dry spot until her chicks arrive. Luckily, she has a true friend in Ben, who responds to every new challenge with kindness and creativity. This is spring story, full of hope, humor, and the promise of new beginnings. Two “Story Starters” follow the text: fun, open-ended questions that can be used as jumping off places for oral and written storytelling.
