Blue Chicken by Deborah Freedman
I LOVE this book! Love!!!! Yes, I know I say that alot....and I mean it - this book is cute, funny, mischievous, and really PUSHES the reader to THINK and draw conclusions!! An adorable little chicken, that is part of a farm painting, springs to life and goes exploring. Unfortunately she spills the blue paint, which goes all over the painting, turning everything a new, bluer shade. In an effort to make it better, she makes the other animals even more upset. She is finally able to find some water, to "clean" everything up...at least for a little bit. The limited text pushes the reader to draw conclusion about each illustration and the story. The story begins the minute you open the book, on the first endpage and extends through the back endpages so be prepared to jump in.
Text: 5 Buckeye Leaves
Illustrations: 5 Buckeye Leaves
Endpages: 5 Buckeye leaves
