Dianne de Las Casas’ NEW book, The Little “Read” Hen, illustrated by the talented Holly Stone-Barker, is here! Join the clucky little hen as she tries to get her friends to help her write a story through the steps of brainstorming, researching, outlining, drafting, editing, and proofing. She’s unflappable and doesn’t let her friends get her in a fowl mood. An EGG-cellent story for aspiring young writers!
“This fresh take on the traditional folktale gives youngsters sound advice on writing their own stories. Teachers will want to use this pun-filled tale in their writing lessons. Colorful cut-paper illustrations add to the humor.”
