Spotlight on Janet Morgan Stoeke and Minerva Louise!
One of our favorite Easter reads so far this year has been Minerva Louise and the Colorful Eggs by Janet Morgan Stoeke. We've been reading through her series of Minerva Louise and have not been disappointed. I think I first came across this series from a Charlotte Mason's reading list. Minerva Louise is a curious, well intentioned, kind, caring chicken all though often confused. My two find her confusion hilarious and I find it very endearing. Whether she's trying to warm lost eggs that are so cold some have turned blue or making herself quite at home in the farmhouse you will enjoy your misadventures with this silly hen. The drawings are clear, sparse and boldly colorful.
As you can see by some of the titles I've included here that you can find a Minerva Louise book for most seasons and Holidays.
List of titles include: A Hat for Minerva Louise, Hide and Seek, Rainy Day, Minerva Louise at School, Minerva Louise, Minerva Louise at the Fair, A Friend for Minerva Louise, Minerva Louise on Halloween, Minerva Louise and the Red Truck, Minerva Louise on Christmas Eve and Minerva Louise and the Colorful Eggs.
