Great for kids Read along in Italian or English. The classic tale of what happens when you believe everything you read on the internet. This story has silly voices, lots of repetition, and is written in the present tense. Once there was a seagull who loved a whale, and a whale who loved a seagull. Will they find a way to be together? Proving once again that cross-dressing wolves are not to be trusted and you can survive in the stomach of a wolf for a surprisingly long time.
And now they were locked up in a coop. I felt sorry for them as they were desperately trying to find the exit. My intention was to let them acclimatize for a few days and then give them freedom during daytime. Freedom called and after a while my chickens took their chance. They started to scratch around in my garden and kept close, so I sat behind my laptop with a big smile and continued working.
After a while I stepped out on the deck to see how they were doing: not a chicken in sight. I was left with a beautiful, completely empty coop. I decided to leave it as it was for now. A couple of weeks ago, I woke up to crowing and what do you know? The rooster was at my doorstep. I gave him some food and let him be. After that he came by every day and he brought along the hen. I opened up the coop, threw some food in and they walked right in.
Can you believe it? From then on, I let them roam during the day and in the afternoon I lure them back into their coop. But I think they find their coop quite comfortable now, sometimes they even walk in on their own. Preview — Chicken Little by Steven Kellogg. Chicken Little by Steven Kellogg. The sky is failing!

This is the story of a little chicken that thought the sky was falling down after an acorn fell on his head. He convinced many other animals including a duck and a fox that the sky was falling down.
The reason I used this story was because it had a simple pattern that the children could easily follow.

Jun 16, Terri Zumbahlen rated it it was amazing Shelves: traditional. This story is a variation from the original. Instead of the fox eating the birds it is arrested. Chicken Little plants the acorn which turns into a big oak tree where she sits telling her grandchildren about her adventure. Personally I think this ending is more appropriate for children and has a better message as evil doing is punished. The illustrations enhance the story nicely and assist with engagement.

Reading it as an adult however, it seems quite violent and many comparisons could be drawn to kidnapping and even serial killers. To a child, I think it's just shockingly funny. Dec 03, Taylor Parker rated it really liked it. Genre: Traditional Literature Grade: k-3 Such a fun book!
