    Hilarious!

    This book is a great twist to the classic Chicken Little. I've read this story with my third grade book club and the kids love the humor and the illustrations. It's flat out funny. As a teacher this book is great to talk about how the not so bright, Chicken Little makes inferences to determine just what this large thing is (ranging from umbrella, squirrel and even an elephant). Through the humor, Keith Graves teaches the struggles of fitting in and trying to belong by still helping others. Place this book in your classroom and home library, it has star power and will stay off the shelves and in kids hands. Chicken BIG book definitely gets kids excited about reading.

    Squawk with Chicken Big

    Reading Chicken Big aloud, you start to enjoy the sound of the words: teeny, itty-bitty, humongous, clucked, enormous, squawked, conked, peeped, splatted, hippopotamus, stomping, teensy-weensy.

    It's easy to see how a child hearing and learning the words would get into the rhythm of the book and be captivated by the illustrations of the large, funny looking chick that somehow saves the day. You don't have to be familiar with the story of Chicken Little to appreciate Chicken Big, but a kid who knows the earlier story will surely find Chicken Big particularly fun.

    Great sounds, engaging pictures, and a story about friendship and fitting in -- I highly recommend Chicken Big.

    Reading level 4 to 8.

    Fabulously Fun Retake

    "More pees!" More pees!" my two year asks. The first day we had this book I think daddy read it like five times before our kiddo allowed him to put it down. I thought my little guy would be a bit young for this book but I was terribly wrong. He loves it. He loves it so much he's requested it to be read almost every day for over a month.

    Chicken Big is a fabulously fun retake on the Chicken Little tale. The illustrations are reminiscent of a comic strip with word bubbles popping up here and there animating these crazy little chickens. It starts off, "On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen laid a big, humongous egg...out popped a big, humongous chick." However, the little chickens couldn't figure out what on earth this humongous thing could be and wouldn't allow him in their coop. Throughout their sad attempts in figuring out what he was (an elephant, squirrel, umbrella, etc.) and fear and frantic reaction to things like acorns dropping, rain and wind, he managed to shelter, protect and enlighten them. At the end of the tale, the big humongous chick saves the day and the nutty little chickens realize that, "Only one thing could be so smart, so kind, so warm, and so brave..."

    There are numerous lessons you can pull from this delightful book; not judging someone by how they look, empathy, character, life cycle of a chicken, weather, seasons and science, etc. This would be a great present for kids 2-8 yrs old (probably closer to 4-8 but my 2 year old LOVES this story). It's a fantastic fun read-a-loud and one of my kiddo's new favorites.

    Chicken Enormous (among other things!)

    In it, 4 little chickens contemplate what the big chicken is. They think he might be an elephant (because he is big), a squirrel (because he likes acorns), an umbrella (because he can protect them from rain), etc but (of course), the eventually realize that he is in fact, a chicken (because "only ONE thing could be so smart, so kind, so warm, and so brave.")

    My 3 year old son loves the funny chicken sounds "Buk Bok! Bok! Aaaaawk! Awk!" making it fun to read (if you like making funny sounds) and he repeats a few phrases from the book that he thinks are funny. He also loved learning the words "enormous" and "humongous." But I would have to say that our favorite parts of the book are the back cover (which we have to read at least twice every time we read the book) and the page before the title page ("What should we call this book? How about Chicken Kind of Large! OR ... Chicken Tall! No, no, no. CHICKEN SALAD!"). It really sets the tone of the book, introduces you to all the characters and makes the story even more fun. This book definitely will make you smile.
