All cooped up in the library!

The first grade has been having fun with chicken-themed books during story time.  A few favorites:
Chicken Soup by Jean Van Leeuwen (we loved the funny pictures!)
A Hen for Izzy Pippik by Aubrey Davis (great discussion!)
The Chicken Problem by Jennifer Oxley (a favorite!)
Minerva Louise at School by Janet Morgan Stoeke (the Amelia Bedelia of the henhouse!)
Mrs. Chicken and the Hungry Crocodile by Won-Ldy Paye (what a surprise ending!)
Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein (Caldecott honor book that made us laugh out loud!)
From Egg to Chicken by Anita Ganeri (really good information!)
Extraordinary Chickens by Stepphen Green-Armytage (amazing photographs!)
Tillie Lays an Egg by Terry Golson (another favorite!)

What an egg-citing opportunity to review the differences between fiction and nonfiction!
