Handa's Hen

Handa and her friend Akeyo find two butterflies fluttering around the hen house, three stripy mice under the grain store, four little lizards behind the pots...but where is grandma's black hen?

Richly narrated and beautifully illustrated, 'Handa's Hen' is a dazzling feast for the senses. Following Handa and Akeyo's exciting journey allows children to develop counting skills as they encounter different groups of animals. Younger readers will enjoy counting crickets and spotting starlings, playing memory games and discovering new animals. Older readers will be able to develop their vocabulary skills through learning about the natural world. The dual language text will allow readers to learn to count in their home language.
