“Now please don‘t interrupt the story. This story is called interrupting chicken right papa?”
The illustrations in this book along with the cute humor is my favorite.
This book was adorable! It has cute humor along with a lesson of not to interrupt someone. I think this is such a cute book to read to children. The kids I think would love this because they already know the chicken will interrupt his dad every page and they would think it‘s funny.
This book is adorable!! The interrupting chicken interrupts her father when telling classic fairy tales and because she interrupts, the story ends and there is no conflict! The idea of this book is unique and super fun, and the illustrations are so well done and add so much to the story.
This book is so funny! Papa Chicken is trying to read his little one a story before bed but he just can‘t stop interrupting the story.
My Kindergarten class LOVES when I read this book and always laughs. I appreciate how it includes the beginnings of real fairy tales and stories for Little Chicken.
Great read for children of all ages!
published 2010. I really loved the message behind this book. This book can easily relate the all young children. Young children love to interrupt their parents while they are readying this book. I also love how this book has the pictures of the books that the chicken is reading within this book.
This book is a very humorous picture book. I really enjoy the characterization of the little red chicken and how excited he is about his books. I also enjoy the message it shows that books have more than one job. Picture books excite children rather than just put them to bed which David Ezra Stein does a beautiful job showcasing in this picture book.

This F book is SO CUTE! This is the story of a little chicken who is constantly interrupting the story to warn the characters of impending danger. This book would work best in lower elementary grades and it is very simple but an absolutely adorable read. #ucflae3414sp18
Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein is a 2011 Caldecott Honorable Mention Fairytale picture book. Interrupting chicken is about a young chicken who is listening to his father reading fairytale stories. But Interrupting chicken decides that he wants to change the ending. This story would be great for K-2 for its references to folk stories, and will elicit many giggles every time the chicken interrupts.
We hatched 7 little baby chicks at my library today! How cute are they?! Their names (chosen by kids) are: Liberty, Daisy, Flash, Einstein, Tembo, Floof, & - my personal favorite - Wild Thing. 🐣🤗💖
“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer & cold in the winter. It's round & wet & crowded...There's only one rule that I know of, babies - God damn it, you've got to be kind.” - Vonnegut
Happy birthday, chickies!
Interrupting Chicken by David Ezra Stein tells the story of a little Chicken who is getting ready for bed. He asks his papa to read him a bedtime story. His papa agrees if Chicken promises not to interrupt.They begin story after story from Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood to Chicken Little.
Our jr-k class is having a tough time with raising hands & not interrupting right now, so we read this during morning meeting today. The kids loved it because it‘s silly; hopefully they also grasped the bigger meaning of the story.
Personally I loved it. Adorable & the illustrations are great fun. Will probably add this to my library at some point, especially if my kid ends up being an interrupter like I was. 😉
