In some ways, I like it The illustrations are great The story is cute I would ve loved a ingenious solution, but this works, too Quibbles The idea of a librarian preparing a single book for storytime is pretty incredible to me Also, I m not with the standing on tables and bookcases And her crowd control is pretty weak The librarian isn t modeling very good handling of books with her feet kicked up, using them as a footstool at the end And hot tea and a muffin At storytime in the library Nah Las [...]
LOVE this Such a cute little story, and since I am a Librarian who own chickens, this is a great book for me This would be a great story for preschoolers, even young ones, since there are not many words and the colorful illustrations tell a story on their own But it will also appeal to older children since it s so silly Since it takes place in a library, this is a perfect choice for story time.
Phenomenal This should appeal to a pretty broad range of audiences Illustrations are hilarious and reward close observation.
Cute But, what librarian only brings one book to read at storytime Hmm.
First sentence Story time at the library One librarian One story Children And a chicken The children like the chicken The chicken likes the children Let s begin, says the librarian Everyone loves story time One week later Story time at the library.Premise plot What would you do as a librarian if CHICKENS started showing up for story time Essentially that s the premise of this silly book celebrating reading and libraries.My thoughts I loved this one I love the premise Seeing the chicken crowd gro [...]
A very cute picture book whose ending was spoiled by a really annoying clich d gag The librarian made sense right up until then, so that was unfortunate I had to downgrade the book from four stars to three at that point.I work at a library that has a Barks and Books program where kids read to a dog, so the idea of reading stories to chickens didn t seem that farfetchedwell, okay, so chickens have a shorter attention span than dogs, so that would affect the book selection process, but even soThe [...]
Funny book Boys liked counting the chickens on each page.
My favorite part is the librarian at the end relaxing with a book while the kids read to the chickens.
This is SO CUTE I wish this would happen in my storytime Why does the chicken cross the road OBVIOUSLY for storytime It s a cute book about the joy of books and reading spreading and gaining popularity Lots of details in the illustrations that careful observers will be rewarded with This might make it a better read for one on one, but it s still super cute and would translate well to storytime esp smaller groups I added it to toddler and preschool storytime as well as family, though I think it w [...]
So silly and engaging
So fun Librarian Me is very happy with this Would be fun to try in storytime I think Toddler could sit for it Preschool will like Maybe even school age Lap reads and read alones will be nice, too But to read a book about storytime in storytime just seems perfect And if only library chaos were THAT easy to solve 6 21 17 I had unexpected time left after my 3 books Which I was kind of hoping for so I could read this Betsy had considered reading it in Toddler, but ended up not So I was glad to have [...]
I know this is a kid book, but this was a cute funny story that I liked which was really good, I really like the art and the sense of humor the author had put in the book, I recommend this book for parents who like reading books to their children.
A chicken drops by storytime at the library and the next week he brings friends Love the creative librarians solution Simple words but picture reliant One on one for sure or preschool.
Fun art work, not many words on each page and a cute story I wouldn t use it for library story time, but would have a young child read along with me one on one.

Chicken Story Time written by Sandy Asher illustrated by Mark Fearing New York Dial Books for Young Readers, c2016 36 pages SUMMARY Storytime in the library becomes increasingly chaotic as first one chicken then a whole flock joins in and the librarian must come up with a creative solution so that everyone can enjoy the storyVIEW As a librarian, I read anything about books and libraries I liked this title because who doesn t love storytime especially children and chickens in this case A curious [...]
Simple text paired with illustrations that fill the entire page make up this story, and lend this book to sharing with groups the kids would be able to see the pictures Each page has about one or two sentences, with some clucks scattered around near the chickens The story itself is cute a chicken sees a sign for Story Time, and attends, to the delight of the children Next week the chicken comes back, then the next week several chickens and children attend Soon the library is overrun with chicke [...]
As a children s librarian, this book had me cracking up I loved the looks of horror on the adult librarians faces, and how the children s librarian just rolled with it And even without chickens in my library, I could sympathize with the librarian s frenzied attempts to regain control of her story time when things got out of hand I think kids will get a kick out of this story as well as the librarians who order it The illustrations are colorful and cartoonish, and there is a lot going on in each [...]
When chickens find out there s a story time at the library, every week the chicken crowd grows until it s out of control Good thing the smart librarian thinks of the perfect solution to quell the chaos and bring peace back to the library for everyone chickens included This is a great read aloud for storytimes and will make little people laugh out loud as the chickens take over It will also make a great lap sit, because there are a few nice details that you can point out in a one on one read in t [...]
Themes Children Chickens Library Storytime LibrarianThis is a cute book for storytime Why did the chicken cross the road To get to story time at the library, of course The children love the chicken The chicken loves the children But what happens when one chicken becomes two Then five Then a whole flock With all that clucking and chaos it s impossible to hear the story Luckily, the clever librarian knows just what to do to keep everyone hens and humans alike happy inside left jacket flap
One chicken attends storytime at the library and loves it, so next week she brings some chicken friends And then chicken friends And and until story time at the library turns into a chaotic mess of chickens and children and only one librarian The librarian solves the problem in a creative way A cute, funny book with detailed illustrations that kids will love to pore over and simple, repetitive words that young readers can try to read themselves Great for a read aloud.
This story is envied by every children s librarian our there, unless, of course, you are anti fowl and don t like large attendance at story time Not only is Chicken Story Time a brightly illustrated book, but it emphasizes the importance of reading The book itself starts out at a public library announcing its story time Like some story times, only a few children show up and of course a chicken The next week children and chickens come, surprising everyone even I don t want to give away the stor [...]
This librarian is an AMATEUR All she needed was to have everyone do the chicken dance, and then they would have settled down for a story.Funny, but the solution is pretty lame, and I m with those who find watching the librarian sit there with hot tea and a muffin, AND her feet on the books to be a pretty poor role model She should at least be reading to a chicken herself
Very cute book about chickens that go to the library story time It reminds me of the library in Oviedo, Florida which has lots of chickens in the parking lot, and is KNOWN for them There is very little text, the illustrations tell the story, so it is an ideal book for a library story time.
I LOVE CHICKENS LIKE REALLY LOVE CHICKENS.This book was perfect Honestly, the illustrations make the book The chickens and children are adorable, and I kind of want to purchase a copy of this book for myself I ll definitely reread this again
Chickens in the library Could get very messy, but this is a fun story anyway Big bright colors and repetition of phrases draw the young reader in quickly.I like that the librarian had the solution to the chicken problem Librarians simply love to help
When a chicken comes to storytime at the library, she tells all her friends Soon the one librarian is overwhelmed by MANY chickens and MANY children so many, she can t be heard over them all Then she has a brilliant idea to accommodate all the chickens and all the kids SHARE MORE BOOKS, but in small groups It s a hit and the librarian can relax Librarians and kids AND chickens can appreciate this one.
Love it Sometimes a simple story time can melt down on the librarian, but I ve never seen one go quite like this The kids love story time andwell do the neighborhood chickens So many chickens This is a fun and silly book that I plan to share at my story time.
4.4 starsFun This would be great for library story time and also as a reinforcement for the concept of buddy reading time.
The illustrations were fun The story line just didn t grab me, and I m a librarian.
