CHICKEN WANTS A NAP
Written by Tracy Marchini
Illustrated by Monique Felix
Published by Creative Editions (August 15, 2017)
Themes: Life on the farm, humor, dealing with frustration
Synopsis: From Amazon:
The sun is up, and a happy barnyard chicken is looking forward to a comfortable day—preferably one that includes a relaxing nap. However, every time she tries to find a good spot, something goes wrong. The sun disappears and is replaced by rain. She is driven out of the warm barn by obnoxious noises and smells. The dog is too curious for her to stay on the porch. Finally, the rain stops, and the worms come out. This is good news for the chicken—but bad news for the worms!
Why I like this book:
- Simple text that draws the listener in and invites reader participation
- Great illustrations that tell part of the story and marry with the text perfectly
- Filled with humor and a SUPER twist at the end
- Super read aloud!
