Description

Free sample of the download-and-print Phonics With Feeling book “Ben, Jen and the Hens” by Australian author and illustrator Gaia Dovey. This is the third of five Initial Code Review books.

This book is about an industrious boy who builds himself a den. His little sister then wants in, with her pet hen. Illustrations add emotion and humour. You can decide whether colouring them in is allowed. Here’s Jen being a typical little sister:

Mayhem ensues when the hen makes a nest and hatches six chicks, which are soon fully grown:Ben issues an ultimatum, and Jen must find new accommodation for her seven hens. We hope this story provokes interesting conversations about sharing with siblings, drawing boundaries, the up and down sides of having pets, being resourceful and solving problems.

All the Phonics With Feeling books contain cohesive narratives, entertaining plots, engaging characters, and themes worth talking about. Containing more words than most decodable books (167 words in this case), they offer intensive decoding practice.

This book is suitable for children towards the end of their first year of school, or in Year 1, or slightly older catch-up learners.
