Little Red Chicken is on his way to bed and asks his Papa to read him a story. Papa read him fairy tales and he was having a hard time not interrupting and telling the characters about the bad that lies ahead.

The book Interrupting Chicken is a humorous picture book that incorporates other tales in it such as Little Red riding hood. It can be used to introduce different fables to students in a humorous and engaging way! Allowing students to read it out loud can create great fluency/prosody practice for them. The little chicken in the book has a lot of personality and it can also show students voice in writing. The illustrations are also great and add to the humor of the book. ( )

Interrupting Chicken is about a young chicken having bed time stories read to her. When her Papa gets to the middle of the story, she hops up and shouts out the ending, making it impossible for her to fall asleep. The images are bright and warm, giving the sense that this is a comfortable story time and that it's a loving home, while still expressing little chicken's wild energy. The change in design between the stories that are being read and the story we are in is very pronounced and helps break apart the text for readers. I love reading this one to my student's because they always perk up and yell out the sections that little chicken interrupts in, too. They also laugh more than at any other read aloud book we share, so I know that I'm not the only one who finds this humorous. ( )

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.
