One of my favorite stories growing up was Chicken Little. Recently, a new version arrived at the library entitled Brave Chicken Little retold and illustrated by Robert Byrd. Before reading the book I asked ML, “Do you know who Chicken Little is? She immediately yelled at the top of her lungs, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
Why should you read this book?
It’s a great read-aloud with characters I’m not familiar with from other editions… Piggy Wiggy, Rabbit Babbit, Natty Ratty, Froggy Woggy and Roly and Poly Moley. Then, there’s Foxy Loxy’s children… Foxy Boxy, Foxy Doxy, Foxy Hoxy, Foxy Moxy, Foxy Noxy, Foxy Poxy, and Foxy Soxy. The opportunity to read those names is in itself a reason to check out this book.
