The overall lesson in this story is to not trust strangers and believe everything people tell you because they may try and trap you into an uncomfortable situation.
The type of literature this book uses is fable, folklore, and fairy tales. It uses fable because it is a short fictional story that has a moral or teaches a lesson. It uses folklore by encompassing the traditional story. Finally, this story is a fairytale because it is a magical story.
Review: Chicken Little by Steven Kellogg, is a traditional storybook abut a little chicken that gets hit on the head by an acorn and thinks the sky is falling! It's a funny story and I really enjoy it.
Blurb: being able to be the only one who knows what actually hit Chicken Little in the head makes this story cool as a reader.
Quote: “The sky is falling!“
Genre: Traditional Literature
I have always loved this book (and the Chicken Little movie) as it reminds me of myself. I would definitely be someone to get hit on the head with an acorn and then think that the “sky was falling”. I love the illustrations in this book and how it shows two perplexities happening: the fox‘s, then the other animals‘.
This picture book is simple and direct which allows children to easily pick up and read this book. I really enjoyed going back to my childhood as I read this book. The text is lively. I think that an early childhood grade would either love seeing and hearing or reading this book with a partner.
