Interrupting Chicken– A Fav!

So happy to have "an excuse" to do a quick post on a book my kidpeople love– Thanks to Deanna at Mrs. Jump's Class for the great linky! Do you know Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein?

This great Caldecott Honor book features a little chicken who can't quite control herself from interrupting stories with how she thinks the story should end. All my kids loved the predictability and "kid wins in the end" element to the story. No matter if you are looking for bedtime books, books to talk about blurting, books that highlight classic fairytales, or just a really good and funny book, Interrupting Chicken is it!

And after you read the story to your class, let them enjoy my favorite rendition by Tickletales– love the expression!

I have eight and a half days until school ends. I'm dashing out the door! This wins as my fastest post ever!-- under 45 minutes!

Now be sure to click on Deanna's link to find more great books!

  1. My kids LOVE Interrupting Chicken! I read it at the beginning of each year, and if the children interrupt me when I'm talking to someone I call them a chicken. They always giggle when I say it :)


  2. Terrific! I had some "Lucy Walkers" too. Do you know that book? Thanks for sharing.

  3. I love Interrupting Chicken! It is one of my class' favorite books every year. I'm already on my third hardcover copy- they "love" that book intensely! But now I've learned- the two that have been to the book hospital stay out for them to use, and this third copy is just for me!

    1. We call our used books that look less than new "much loved books." We say their worn condition is sort of like an award sticker on the book, telling us that lots of kids have loved it, so it must be good. And I think it is important that the class has easy access to the books we read, so I have multiple copies of many books. I'm glad you do the same thing. Thanks for sharing!

  4. My kids adore this book! I read it at the beginning of the year and I had a little guy that read this book at least 2-3 times a week! :)

  6. I love that book! Thanks for sharing! Enjoy your last few days of school!

  7. Can't wait to buy and share this book - especially if it will help with the blurting that drives me crazy! Thanks!

  8. Well... no guarantee :) But it does highlight it in a nice and funny way. And asking them if they are being "a chicken" is a cute idea from Zoe up there in the comments. Thanks for sharing.
