Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carollyne Hutter
What would happen if Chicken Little (Chachalaca Chiquita) lived in Texas when a pebble fell on her head? "Aye Chihuahua!" she would say. This is the story of Texas Chicken Little. The animals in the story speak a combination of English and Spanish as they search for the valley boss, jefe, to tell him of the sky falling. As the Chiquita and friends go on their quest, they are immersed in a world of Southwest wildlife and landscape; full of cacti, lizards, and plateaus. The story ends with a surprising twist when Chiquita has to show how brave she is and fly away, while Tacito Ocelote learns that what goes around comes round. David Harrington's vibrant illustrations capture the many expressions of the animals and the beautiful colors of the Southwestern landscape. The story uses real animals native to Texas, which could promote discussions about the animals and plant life in the Southwestern landscape. Spanish words are part of the animals' conversations, which could promote bilingual skills. A well-design glossary at the end explains how to pronounce Spanish words and their meaning.
