Chicken Story Time

Chicken Story Time. Sandy Asher. Illustrated by Mark Fearing. 2016. (Dec) 40 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Story time at the library. One librarian. One story. Children. And a chicken. The children like the chicken. The chicken likes the children. "Let's begin," says the librarian. Everyone loves story time. One week later. Story time at the library.

Premise/plot: What would you do--as a librarian--if CHICKENS started showing up for story time?!?! Essentially that's the premise of this silly book celebrating reading and libraries.

My thoughts: I loved this one!!! I love the premise. Seeing the chicken crowd grow larger and larger week by week made me smile. The librarian grew more and more flustered until she thought of a good solution.
