124 - Interrupting Chicken; David Ezra Stein




Interrupting Chicken is the cutest story. It is about The Little Read Chicken who cannot help but interrupt Papa when he reads a bedtime story each night. As Papa reads, the little chicken knows the characters, whether Hansel and Gretel or Little Red Riding Hood, are about to get into trouble, so she shouts out and interrupts the story never allowing Papa to finish.  Little Red Chicken gets so excited keeping the story characters out of trouble, that she still isn't asleep. It's frustrating for Papa, so Little Red Chicken offers to read him a story instead, and before long she puts him to sleep.

This is the perfect story to teach little ones manners and the concept that it is rude to interrupt. David Ezra Stein is both the author and the illustrator. The colors are fabulous and the illustrations are whimsical. It's a cute story for parent and child.  Ages 4-8; RECOMMENDED - 5/5 stars

  9. Oh, gosh this looks like something a young boy in my family might find in his holiday gifts! He'd get an especial kick out of it because he likes to tell the interrupting chicken (or cow, or Indiana Jones) joke!

  10. Z's school librarian read this to them at the beginning of the year to teach them about manners and all of the kids LOVED it! I heard it a few times while I was volunteering and thought it was very cute. :)
