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.

“Once there was a little red chicken who put her Papa to bed. She read him a hundred stories. She even gave him warm milk, but nothing worked: he stayed wide awake all- ZZZZZZZZZZZ”

I liked how the illustrator put the chicken into the actual story book as he was interrupting the story.

This book was very cute and fun. I loved how the chicken ended up making his own story and putting his papa to bed.

This is a cute book that shows the relationship between a father and a daughter. It shows children how the daughter gets over excited to tell how each story should end.

My favorite part of this book is the end, when the chicken‘s papa finally tells him to read him a story instead. The chicken‘s papa falls right asleep.

Genre: Caldecott
I love how this book has smaller stories included within it. I can relate to this book as well because as a child, I could never fall asleep, no matter what my parents tried.

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.

I LOVE this book! I feel like a lot of little kids like to guess what happens next when being read so this book would be a great story for them so they don‘t feel like they‘re the only ones who do it!

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!

BookishShelly My son is a kindergartener and he loves this book too. Friday he kept interrupting his friend, so his friend shouted “interrupting chicken!” 7mo
KristenDuck @BookishShelly you should tell him the knock knock joke - who‘s there - interrupting chicken - interrupting ch - cluuuuuck! 7mo
dreadamara Awesome! My mother raises chickens and I'm always looking for good books for my 2yr old who is already book obsessed. 7mo

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.

Published by Candlewick Press in 2010. The story included different folk stories which I thought was very interesting. The interrupting chicken very much reminds me of a typical little kid.

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

devin.s This book won the Caldecott Honor. I think this would be a GREAT RT for the classroom as you could have a student be your “interrupting chicken”! Here is a link to a “quack” activity, which is teaching students to NOT be interrupting chickens: https://www.the-best-childrens-books.org/Interrupting-Chicken-lesson.html UDL: 3.2, 3.4, 4.1 ELL: 3, 5, 8 1y
DrSpalding This would be a great lesson for the first week of school when you are reviewing and establishing your classroom rules. There truly is a good book for everything. 1y

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.

Ryanne.H This book would be perfect for a Read-Aloud so the teacher can use different voices and expressions to capture her students attention. Afterwards students can try to read a book with a partner and have their own interrupting chicken. UDL 7.1 (Optimize individual choice and autonomy) pairs well with this activity as students decide when to interrupt and how to change the story their partner is reading. For EL learners, El 17 (Provide contextual 2y
Ryanne.H Support through audio visuals, models, demonstrations, realia, body language and facial expressions) by having an audio version of Interrupting chicken available during the read aloud 2y
DrSpalding Be sure to add a web resource. While this book discusses folklore, it would technically be another genre. Take a look at your FlipBook. You are very close. Excellent EL/UDL alignment. Some teachers use this book while teaching class rules at the beginning of a school year. 2y

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.

ChelseaPerez But, little Chicken could not stop interrupting. They had run out of stories to read, but Chicken insisted he just could not sleep without one. Papa suggested that Chicken tell him a story instead, but this time the wrong person falls asleep: Papa ! This Caldecott winner would be such a great Read Aloud or Storytelling book ! 2y

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. 😉
