Then there was "Always Lots of Heinies at the Zoo" and "The Tushy Book". My gang has not read neither of these two, although we've seen them, and I imagine we'll pick them up at the library at some point.
Which is what I suggest you do with "Chicken Butt!" The reason I don't suggest you run out and buy this book -- despite the fact that my 7 year old son thought it was funny -- is that it's a one trick pony. Yes... the artwork is colorful and cute. And Yes... it made my son laugh, and my daughter (9) smile, BUT it's not the sort of book they are going to read and reread over months. A week yes. But it's got no long term staying power.
The dialog between a boy and his dad starts out like this:
You know what?
You know why?
They then go on to cover 'how' and 'when', etc. And it ends in a fashion reminiscent to the old knock-knock joke that involves a banana and orange.
This is a cute book that has kid-friendly art and a laugh or three. It ought to appeal to preschoolers through 8 year olds.
Though the book is nicely put together I can't recommend it as a purchase.
It's a good read-aloud. Either solo or as group.

Yeah, as you might expect, I have yet to have found a young kid who did NOT think that this was the funniest book they have ever read! It seems like all of the kids in school are doing that "You know what? Chicken butt!"
So, if you want to give your kid a real treat, give this book to him or her - you'll never hear the end of it! (God knows I haven't.)
On the other hand, now my children run around the house screaming CHICKEN BUTT at one another all day long.
Also the story kind of emphasizes annoying the crap out of (their father) despite being clearly asked not to. Not the best lesson to be imparting, even for a joke. Only reason I dropped it a star. Other than that, it's a cute book.

Cute book, but not as much to it as I thought. Of course, the novelty of a book with the words "chicken butt" throughout does tickle the kids.Published 14 months ago by Debbie Herman
