How I Heard About It: I was at a workshop today presented by Donalyn Miller. There were many books on display to purchase and when I saw this one, it reminded me that I wanted to add it to my collection of picture books.
What It Is About: This is a cute little story about Little Red Chicken and her bedtime. She wants Father Chicken to read her a bedtime story. She gets so excited and involved in the story that she keeps interrupting her father while he reads. She always has a Little Red Chicken save the day in the story Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, and Chicken Little. There is a great twist at the end of the story and I won't spoil that here.
Who Should Read It: .Everyone should read and enjoy this story as much as I did. It would make a wonderful read aloud to any grade level. I think any listener at the various grade levels, will be able to gain something different from the story. I also think all kids should read this story on their own so they can appreciate all the excellent illustration. This was a Caldecott Honor Book. Happy Reading...
