I accompanied my family to the theater to see Chicken Little and was VERY surprised at just how good it was!
My 7 year old son loved the movie, so when he saw Disney's Read Aloud Storybook Chicken Little in the bookstore he exclaimed "Mama! I want this book!" He excitedly took a seat in the bookstore, engrossed in the pages of his new find.
As a Mom who encourages her son to read, I of course bought him the book! But not after taking a hard look at it first. Not all "based on the movie" books are that great, in all honesty.
However, this Disney version passed muster quite easily. It's a hardback book with a glossy cover and is about 8 X 10 in size. Surprisingly, there are 64 colorful pages to Chicken Little. The pages aren't CGI stills of the movie (think Madagascar) but rather are beautifully rendered paintings based on various scenes.
The story is divided into three sections: A Chicken With A Past, The Sky Falls Again, and Family Matters. A Chicken With A Past includes scenes such as Chicken Little being pelted with acorns by the kids on the bus (including Foxy Loxy), Little catching a ride with a sticky lollipop (remember the gum on the street scene?), the sprinkler fiasco in the gym, the big baseball game, and more.
The Sky Falls Again section depicts the strange panel that falls in Little's room, Fish being caught in the space ship, various scenes from within the ship, the whole town gathering at the ball field, and the orange fuzzy alien that was left behind.
Family Matters begins with Little's Dad apologizing to people on the phone the next day and shows the alien "invasion", Little's smooch with Abby Mallard, the meeting with the alien Mom and Dad, the movie "Chicken Little: The True Story" (Ha!) and more.
Despite being 60+ pages, it's not an overly long book so it's a great bed time story. It's not short, though, either. It's a great mix of text and colorful pictures in my opinion. The font is a nice size, too.
My son LOVES this book and asks my husband and me to read it all the time. In fact, he's working on what he calls "Chicken Little II" where he takes elements from the book, changes them, and then re-draws them on blank paper.
Sturdy, engaging, and beautifully rendered, Disney's Chicken Little Read Aloud Storybook is a wonderful book for young fans of the movie. This would make an excellent holiday gift, too!
