9780613228947: Minerva Louise at School

Out for an early morning walk, Minerva Louise the hen sees a big, fancy "barn" with a flag out front and brightly decorated windows. She just has to explore the "stalls" with "milking stools," the "pigpen," and (most important for a hen) the "nesting boxes." Young children--who know a school when they see one--will delight in the intrepid hen's third birdbrained adventure.

"Delightful...Minerva Louise's goofy perceptions and enterprising spirit are sure to tickle preschoolers." --Kirkus Reviews

About the Author:

Janet Morgan Stoeke is the creator of the hen Minerva Louise, who has appeared in many books. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia. Visit her website at http://www.minervalouise.com

From Kirkus Reviews:

That inquisitive hen (A Hat for Minerva Louise, 1994) is back, in fine feather. She goes exploring early one morning and discovers a wonderful ``barn.'' Preschoolers will recognize it as a school when they see it, but not Minerva Louise. In fact, the perspective in the text is utterly hers, while the pictures show all the facts. The ``farmer'' hanging out the laundry is really a janitor raising the flag, ``stalls'' are classrooms, and the wonderfully decorated ``nesting boxes'' are children's storage cubbies. One of them has an ``egg'' in it (a baseball in a mitt). The simple, brightly colored illustrations provide all the personality this tale needs. The story has a delightful moment of truth at the end: ``She knew she'd go back to the fancy barn some day . . . because it was such a wonderful place to get new ideas.'' Minerva Louise's goofy perceptions and enterprising spirit are sure to tickle listeners at story hour. (Picture book. 2-6) -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
