Chicken Dance by Tammi Sauer, illustrated by Dan Santat
There's a talent show tonight at the farm and the prize is tickets to the Elvis Poultry concert. All the animals are excited and really want to win these tickets! Chickens Marge and Lola want especially want to win and immediately begin thinking of what to do.
As the chickens try their hand at several different activities (and failing at each one of them), the ducks discouraged them every step of the way.
That night, as each of the animals perform their talent, the chickens become more nervous as they don't have anything prepared! They just "wing it," coming up with the next big dance craze.
And who was watching the whole time?? You'll have to read it to find out!
What I Thought:
This is a super cute book! Kids will love it for the dancing chickens and the idea of chickens dancing, bowling, and even swimming! Adult will like it, especially those who enjoy anything dealing with "Elvis" as the "King" is brought to life in chicken form!
The illustrations are great, make sure you check out the endpapers as they are really cute!
A great read. Pair it up with Doreen Cronin's Thump, Quack, Moo for a fun farmyard talent show storytime.
