As a group of chickens go on adventures to face their fears of the ever-looming wolf, they surprisingly find courage and "guts" to face their fears on adventures of their own. My 4 year old grandchild loves this story! The book has a great story line, rhyming, and repetition. As a loving grandparent and Reading Specialist, this book gets top reviews on my list!
Because it is very funny how the chickens are really scared at first and then they accidentally end up doing adventurous things and they keep on doing them and they conquer their fears.
Each book offers the child the opportunity to read and discover something about themself (i.e. courage..."The Big Chickens" or a fun with mathematics "The Smushy Bus"). But her books also allow the delicious opportunity to share the reading within the intimacy of parent-child, teacher-student, sibling-sibling and enjoy the noticing of each clever phrase, each well-chosen word to more fully take in the entire experience of her books.
Much applause to Ms. Helakoski for her gift not only to chilren but her gift to the legacy of books.
Who is in the cave? The wolf! What will happen? Will the chickens be scared again or will it be the wolf?
Hilarious, well-written and illustrated book with a great ending. One of our favorites from the library.
