I predict a sequel to this book... there's a cliff hanger at the end... a DUCK shows up! (Not in the actual words of the story just a sneak peek on the last page.. my 2 yr old pointed it out!)

Turns out chickens like story time. So what's a librarian to do when chickens and story time get out of hand? This adorable book with cute illustrations shows us how one library handles a unique problem. As a librarian who has held many a story time (sadly, none with chickens) I can relate to our main character here.

A fun simple book that requires the reader to search the illustrations to "fill in" gaps in the story.

Simple text paired with illustrations that fill the entire page make up this story, and lend this book to sharing with groups-the kids would be able to see the pictures. Each page has about one or two sentences, with some 'clucks' scattered around near the chickens. The story itself is cute- a chicken sees a sign for Story Time, and attends, to the delight of the children. Next week the chicken comes back, then the next week several chickens (and more children) attend. Soon the library is overrun with chickens and children. The resourceful librarian has the idea for the children to read to the chickens. This goes over very well, and everyone enjoys story time again.

Rather predictable humor. Each week more and more kids, more and more chickens appear at the library reading time until finally, chaos ensues.
While nothing out of the ordinary, a cute book.

I wish more chickens came to my storytimes. However, I do get the occasional turkey. :)
