Hawkins: Jen The Hen Summary

Hawkins: Jen The Hen by Colin Hawkins

Colin and Jacqui Hawkins first created Pat the Cat to help their daughter to learn to read. The rhyming split pages helped her to recognise lots of new words simply by changing a single letter as she turned each page. She quickly caught on to the basic mechanics of reading. The Hawkins then went on to produce Jen the Hen Mig the Pig Tog the Dog and Zug the Bug (also available from Dorling Kindersley). Teachers recognised the books as excellent introductions to reading and reviewers compared them to Dr Seuss. Children loved their rhyming humour. And parents have been using them successfully ever since!
