This is a great picture book for young children! Papa is reading a bedtime story to Little Chicken, and Little Chicken just gets so excited about the story, that he can't help but blurt out the rest of the story (or at least his interpretation of it). Papa tries several different stories, but the result is always the same. This book would be a great bedtime story or a story to use as a read-aloud to discuss what is meant by "interrupting". ( )

Story of a little chicken who keeps interrupting his dad while he is telling him stories. ( )

Entertaining tale addressing the bad habit of interrupting. Love how Little Chicken enters classic tales and changes them. Though I feel Papa's frustration. Illustrations do a great job of enhancing the story. Fun read.

A great book that uses classic children's stories to tell the tale of a little red chicken who needs a bedtime story to fall asleep. This chicken however gets so involved in the stories, that she cannot fall asleep, until her Papa asks her to tel him a story!

Love how this book addresses how prevalent blurting out is in school! My students loved it today andit really helped drive home why we need to raise our hands and let others finish speaking before we begin! ( )

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.
