WHAT'S A CHOOK?
Here in Australia, it’s what lots of us call a hen. It rhymes with book. As a Kindergarten teacher, I was a real mother hen, who loved reading aloud to my chicks. The Book Chook blog shares snippets I discover from the wonderful world and words of kids’ literacy, learning and literature. I'm passionate about helping kids read, write and create, and love to create, find and share useful educational resources with parents, teachers and librarians.
