A story of anticipation, waiting, and gratification. A bear wakes up from hibernation ("it was his second year") and remembers the taste of honey - but it's too early. He enjoys the other pleasures of spring and summer until, at last, the honey is ready. Then, it is fall and time to hibernate again. A sweet read-aloud.

"Interrupting Chicken" tells the tale of a little red chicken who just can't resist interrupting her father's bedtime stories.

In the classroom, "Interrupting Chicken" can serve as a valuable tool for teaching about manners, patience, and storytelling. Teachers can engage students in discussions about listening skills and respectful behavior. This book is best for younger grades k-2.… (more)

I think this sequel is even funnier than the original. Maybe because I love cookies?
