***Welcome to BOOK NOOK REVIEWS where I will share my thoughts (and reader rating) on a variety of children’s books…from board books and picture books to chapter books and young adult novels. Why, I might even sneak in an occasional family-friendly adult novel when I get the chance. If my review entices you to buy the book as a gift or to even add to your own home library, why not share this post with others by clicking on the social share links below!***

“Henny was not a typical chicken. Henny was born with arms.”
Sometimes it’s not easy being different. Sometimes people laugh at you. Sometimes you worry. A lot. And sometimes you discover there is something very special about being different.
Why you should read it:
This is a sweet story many children will be able to recognize themselves in. There will come a time in every child’s life when they wonder about how they will fit in and I like how spunky Henny doesn’t allow her differences to become a handicap. Instead she chooses to make a difference in her own little corner of the world and in the end, Henny creates a life where she can soar!
