The Hen Who Sailed Around the World: A True Story


This week at the library, I did an Egg Drop Challenge with kindergarten – 2nd graders.  I didn’t realize how loud we were until after the program when my coworkers gave me the look.  The one of fear that somebody might ask what was going on and complain about the noise.  Then, they would have to explain kids were throwing eggs in the library and the loudest one in the group was the librarian.

We were laughing out of the gate at this program.  Days before a a new book showed up at the library.  It begged to be read to the group before starting the messy fun.  The Hen Who Sailed Around the World:  A True Story by Guirec Soudee is not to be missed.

As for the Egg Drop Challenge, it was so much fun for the kids and myself.  I’m going to do it again this summer with 3rd-5th graders.  In the meantime, I’ll be putting this book on display and recommending it often.
