Today’s picture book is Chicken Story Time by Sandy Asher, illustrated by Mark Fearing via @penguinrandomhouse.

We are partial to birds here at the blog so this one was a treat to review!  One fine day at the library a chicken joins story time and life is never the same.  After realizing how great story time is increasingly more chickens show up for the party.  Chickens & children prove a daunting combination for our librarian until she comes up with an excellent solution.

Sparse text and busy drawings make this picture book ideal for smalls toddler aged and up–a rarity in picture books which are often too lengthy for those three and below.  This one is filled with clever, hijinks-laden comedy for smalls to spot and loads of room for adult readers to add flourish while reading aloud.

Recommended for smalls 2.5 & up, librarians & of course, chickens everywhere.
