This is one of my favorite read-alouds for elementary school audiences. Chicken is getting ready for bed but can't fall asleep until her Daddy reads her a story. He cautions her not to interrupt, but she can't help herself. In addition to being hilarious, this is a warm tale of the bedtime story ritual and parent-child bonding. ( )

This is a good book for a read aloud, as well as a book to encourage students to write in different ways. This would be good to use when talking about HOW an author writes. ( )

This book would be appropriate for primary children because it has a small amount of text on each page and features big pictures. The book explained how the little red chicken keeps interrupting the stories the father is reading and ends up reading her own story, which leads to her father falling asleep. I would use this book during a read aloud or story time and to help students understand that interrupting is bad manners.

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.
