The Clever Hen by Saragine Francois and illustrated by Yoko Matsuoka.
About the Book: Have you ever known anyone who thought they were too smart for their own good? In this short story, when one of the farm animals (Ms. Cleever) thinks she is too bright for the other hens in the chicken coop, including the farm animals, she begins to mock them and treat them rude. As the months passed, Ms. Cleever gets the surprise of her life and is singled out. Will her fellow hens, including the farm animals, help her? Find out in this beautifully written children’s book.
My Review: There was a hen in the chicken coop who thought she could never lay eggs. She thought she was the only bright hen because she loves to read. So the other hens named her Ms. Cleever.
And because she though she was the smartest she had no respect for the other hens including the farm animals, she was rude and impolite. She refuses to help look after the other hens’ chick or spend time to play with the other farm animals. Then the unexpected happened a few months after, the hen who thought that she could never lay eggs suddenly, had four chicks and she didn’t know what to do or how to take care of them. She asked for help but the roles have become reversed. No one wanted to help her.
There’s a good lesson in this book:
Learn to be polite.
Treat people with respect.
Learn to give a helping hand.
You will love this book a must read not only for the family but for classroom teaching. The illustrations by Yoko Matsuoka help bring the book to life with its bold and bright colors. I highly recommend this book.
