Editorial Reviews

Praise for Chicken Story Time:
"This book may make free-range storytimes de rigueur." —Kirkus Reviews

"Asher’s poker-faced, repeating text...offers the perfect setup for Fearing’s wonderfully silly and well-choreographed cartooning." —Publishers Weekly

"Children will flock to hear this raucous read-aloud." —School Library Journal

"A pleasure for reading aloud, with or without chickens." Booklist
