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.

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.comFrom 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.
