SouperChicken is a tale about a passionate reader named Henrietta.

SouperChicken is a tale about a passionate reader named Henrietta. Henrietta is at first teased, then applauded when her reading skills help her foil the farmer's plot to turn her friends into chicken soup. The trouble on the chicken farm begins on the day when Henrietta and her aunties are told they are going on vacation, because the aunties have stopped laying eggs.

As a child, Mary Jane Auch loved books and read constantly. Her interest in drawing began as a child and continued through high school. She went on to become an art major at Skidmore College. After graduation, Auch went for New York City, but after a year of designing prints for men's pajamas, she decided she wanted to do something more meaningful with her life.

That's right, one "souper" chicken. In a hilarious climax, the chickens end up at a vegetarian farm and Henrietta's aunties finally understand the importance of reading

That's right, one "souper" chicken. At first it appears that young Henrietta's reading habit gets her into trouble in the Auchs's (The Princess and the Pizza, 2002, et. latest poultry parody. Henrietta reads anything she can get her wings on and neglects her egg-laying duties. But since her aunties aren't laying many eggs either, their farmer schedules a "vacation" for them. In a hilarious climax, the chickens end up at a vegetarian farm and Henrietta's aunties finally understand the importance of reading.

Mary Jane and Herm Auch have collaborated on more than ten picture books written by Mary Jane. Both artists used digital techniques to create the illustrations in this book. The Auchs live outside of Rochester, New York, and keep a small flock of chickens. I stumbled across this book and checked it out from the library. We are about to take the state standardized test for writing in fourth grade and believe me you, the people that make up the criteria for these tests have no idea what children should be expected to do as writers.

One of the best children's books I have seen in a long time. My seven year old granddaughter has it memorized and still wants to have it read to her and then to read it to me. Henrietta and her aunts are great characters and the credit given to being able to read is great reinforcement for young readers.

Love this book for my four year old! It's cute, funny and really emphasizes the importance of learning to read. Reading about Henrietta has inspired my daughter to start teaching herself to read, with a little help :-)

This book is a lot of fun. It is a cute story. Teachers and children will love it! I highly recommend this book along with The Plot Chickens.

I bought this book several years ago to read to my students. They all love hearing the story. It's a perfect book to get students interested in reading. It's also a good reader for helping students on comprehension.
The story has several scenarios that demonstrate reasons for the need for learning to read. It is fun and helps keep students stay on track.
I ordered this book in large quantities through Amazon and awarded them as prizes for those who reached reading goals.
I highly recommend this book for teachers and parents who want to help kids get an interest in reading.

Adults can enjoy this story as much as children. The plot centers on a chicken who likes to read more than she likes to lay eggs. Her relatives, who cannot read and consider reading a waste of time, are duped into getting onto the truck bound for the soup factory because they can't read the company sign on the truck's side. Souperchicken, the inveterate reader, to the rescue! While the story is very easy for young readers and listeners to understand, the word-play is clever enough to keep adults interested too.

Do NOT buy for your young child! This book, and it's good reviews talking about "making children want to read" is a bunch of propaganda. This book is completely inappropriate, talking about cute chickens getting BEHEADED and being taken away on a truck ready for slaughter to be put into soup cans while they think it is a vacation. I was appalled and hopefully didn't give my son too many nightmares before I started making up my own words to this book. This book should have a warning that it promotes vegetarianism, and while I'm all for it, 5 year olds don't need this lesson right now, before bed. Awful.
While the book encourages reading it does have a bit of a heavy-handed vegetarian message. When the main chicken goes to save her aunts from the soup factory she reads a sign that says "Holding Room, Beheading Room,..." She also sees a truck of pigs marked "Saucy Sausage Company" and some cows headed for the "Happy Hamburger Company". (Not to worry, our chicken heroine saves them.) Not exactly what you want to read to the little ones before bed. My child brought this home from the school library. Cute illustrations, though.
