Review: Are These Hen's Eggs?

A delightful and surprising story featuring Hen, who is diligently protecting her eggs when a storm sweeps through and scatters eggs everywhere.

Hen was counting the days until her eggs hatched, but now she is searching for eggs, counting each one as she finds them with the help of her friends, including cat, dog, owl, goose and duck. Soon there are many eggs! Hen knows they cannot all be hers - some are big, others small, some are blue, some pink and some are even spotted - yet Hen cares for all of them.

Christina Booth is an award-winning Australian author/illustrator, with a gift for conveying emotion and joy in her many stories. Booth's illustrations are endearing, showing love between the hatchlings and their parents.

Are These Hen's Eggs? is a counting book, an egg hunt and a story of friendship and caring with surprises to be found on many pages.
