I really enjoyed reading this book. It is humorous as the chicken interrupts his father, but also teaches a lesson to not always interrupt and ruin the story when it is read to you, but also creativity as the chicken makes up his own story in the end. It is a great book for children.

Papa reads bedtime stories to the little red chicken, but as each fairy tale is read, the little red chicken interrupts. Finally Papa asks the little red chicken to tell him a story. The illustrations are cute, and I loved the use of the old Fairy Tales in the story and illustrations. This one is very deserving of its Caldecott honor status. ( )

When it is time for Papa to read a bedtime story, the little chicken can't help but want to change how the story ends. It seems that Papa can't get through an entire story before the little chicken interrupts the story to put in a new ending.

Story of a tired rooster and his daughter hen. Rooster attempts to read stories in order to put his daughter to sleep but his daughter keeps interrupting the stories and becoming less sleepy each time. Eventually they run out of stories and his daughter reads him an original story and eventually both fall asleep in the same bed.

This is a read aloud picture book that is just plain fun to read. I read it to my daughter and granddaughters and they laughed throughout it. It is a funny book and a sweet book. ( )

Book description
Father and son are chickens in this book and it is bedtime for son, though, when it comes time for bedtimem stories the son is overwhelmed with excitement and inserts himself into each plot line of the few classics dad chicken tries to get through before he is able to get to the end of the story; be it Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel or Chicke Little. The illustrations in this book are likely what will be what stand-out to the story.
