Story is cute and kids will enjoy the story of a mouse who keeps helping his friend the hen who must sit on her eggs so they will hatch, despite serious weather problems. However, because this is a beginning reader text for short vowel I think it is confusing that the author uses, :eggs-cellent!" instead of excellent in the text. I am not sure young children will understand that this is a play on words or catch the humor. The illustrations are fun as they are photographs of real life and the ...more

It's hard to find good books for beginning readers, especially ones that focus on important sound skills. This "Short Vowel Adventure" series does a pretty good job.

Part of the BraveMouse series. Short Vowel "E" is featured in this book. Hen and her mouse friend, Ben, try to save Hen's eggs during a very wet time.
The story is charming, characters, tiny felted animals dressed in handmade clothing, are bright and colorful.
The vocabulary is limited and perfect for younger children. Sharing and cooperation are themes throughout this series.
