Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein
It's bedtime, and Little Chicken is looking forward to his bedtime story! Papa reminds Little Chicken not to interrupt his story...but will he remember? It's hard for a little chicken when one gets involved in the story!
What I Thought:
TOO CUTE! I tend to have the bad habit of finishing other people's sentences, so this book hit right at home plate for me!
As Papa is telling the stories...classic childrens' stories like Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood and the like. But then Papa gets frustrated as Little Chicken interrupts each story and finally requests that Little Chicken tell HIM a story! (Which is quite entertaining!)
This is a super fun book, and I think will be a great read-aloud. And an even better reader's theater story!
(Edited to add...) This book is a 2011 Caldecott Honor book.
