This book was cute and fun to read Chicken thought the sky was falling and fox was always trying to find ways to catch the chickens and ways to cook them The ending was basically the beginning all over again. I enjoyed reading this book, because many reasons, the biggest being the cultural lure of the book, as it is so popular I ve seen the movie as a kid and it surprised me that it was an actual folktale While I hold the movie dearly to my heart, it is hard to not find the book just as satisfying The illustrations are very complimentary to the hilarious text Kellogg provides Kellogg retells this classic tale by creatingdepth to the characters through writing and illustrations which leads to a mor impactful experience in the narrative I really enjoyed the expressions used visually, and vocally In the classroom I could see myself having a lot of fun reading this text, and getting my students engaged. The Sky Is Failing The Sky Is Failing Chicken Little And Her Feathered Friends Are All Aflutter When She Gets A Mysterious Bump On The Head Steven Kellogg S Hilarious Retelling And Irresistible Illustrations Bring Fresh Delight To This Timeless Classic Of Chain Reaction Panic Summary In this version of Chicken Little, Foxy Loxy lures every type of poultry into his poulice car after an accident has happened Once they understand what is happening, the different poultry calls on a helping character to get them out of their situation and Foxy is sent to prison.Evaluation The illustrations were very well drawn for this book They were a bit graphic, however they lined up perfectly with the text on each page It was a funny twist on the story of Chicken Little and was fun to read.Teaching Idea Using this story in your classroom, students can compare and contrast two different versions of the story to show how a story can be changed slightly but also have similar characteristics This teaches students different ways to compare and contrast two things and that skill can be applied to any subject. I remember this book from my childhood It s a humorous retelling of Chicken Little and the detailed illustrations are part of what makes the story 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. 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 isappropriate for children and has a better message as evil doing is punished The illustrations enhance the story nicely and assist with engagement. Genre Traditional LiteratureGrade k 3Such a fun book I remember when I was little I would carry this duck I went everywhere and I loved the story because my stuffed duck reminded me of the chickens One of my childhood favorites I would recommend this book for your classroom bookshelf. This is a retelling of the classic Chicken Little story When Chicken Little feels something bump her head, she automatically goes into a panic that the world is falling Eventually the entire town believes that the world is falling and it leads into a community panic. This story is very old and well known I used it during literacy t get the children to read along with me 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 This helped the less confident students becomecomfortable in reading to me Children found it easy to get into and once they understood the pattern they seemed to read this storyeasily than others The illustrations are extremely pleasing to the eye and help in keeping the story interesting A nice quick read for all foundation stage children When I was really little, this was probably my favorite book My mom always tells me that I would get her to read it to me over and over and over , but if she missed even a word, I would make her start again, because I knew the whole book by heart and wanted it read to me exactly as it was written lol That is so me
