Review By JESSICA ALMY
Accompanied by striking linocut illustrations, Hilda Hen’s Search is a cute story of a hen’s hunt for the perfect place to lay her eggs. After finding several appealing places that aren’t quite right — such as the basket of a bicycle — Hilda finally finds a place to hatch her brood inside a dollhouse.
Mary Wormell’s sweet book is based on a real-life hen named Hilda, and it’s an excellent introduction to chickens for young children, especially given its emphasis on Hilda as an individual and her love for her unhatched chicks.
