Chicken Talk

Chicken Talk. Patricia MacLachlan. Illustrated by Jarrett J. Krosoczka. 2019. 32 pages. [Source: Library]

First sentence: Farmer Otis and his wife, Abby, loved their chickens. Their children, Willie and Belle, loved them, too.

Premise/plot: The chickens on this farm are about to express themselves! These chickens have learned to write and they have OPINIONS to share. What will this family think of these amazing chickens?!

Some sample of their writing:
  • No more ARUGULA
  • The fox is not intelligent.
  • More stories about brave chickens.
  • You drive too fast. Cheerful chickens cross this road. 
My thoughts: I loved this one. It was fun and silly. I love picture books about chickens. There have been so many good books starring chickens.
