really liked it

A chicken named Henrietta loved to read books. She loved to read so much that she had read every book on the farm. Henrietta then decides to write a book herself. She found an old type writer on the farm and started typing away, teaching all the chickens how to write a book, like needing a plot, a main character etc. Henrietta sent her story into a publisher, but they hated her book and refused to publish a book written by a chicken. Henrietta brings her book to the librarian "The Corn Book" and the librarian decides to let her read it to the children, they loved Henrietta's book.
I would say this is a primary book for children because it teachers them the elements of writing a story and it also teaches children the five senses. The Plot Chickens had very bright and bold colors that make the pictures stand out to the reader and listeners. The style of art i think fits this book most is folk art because it distorts reality, but showing chickens writing books and going to the library, interacting with people. This book also had very dramatic and bold shapes. I think this book should be read in a classroom because it teaches children their five senses and how to write a book. It teaches them they need a plot for a story, a main character, giving your main character a problem, and to build suspense. The Plot Chickens is a very informative book for children.
