Blue Chicken by Deborah Freedman - OPTIONAL

Freedman, Deborah.  Blue Chicken Viking, 2011. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK.  When one of the chickens in a partially painted picture tries to help paint the picture, she ends up spilling the blue paint and it gets all over.  Is the picture ruined?  Can the chicken fix her mistake?  She certainly tries to clean up her mess.  This is an extremely simple book.  It's all about the pictures more than the words.  And the pictures really are beautiful, but I feel that the book as a whole is still lacking.  After I read it I thought, "That was okay."  Nothing special.  Pre-K - OPTIONAL.  Brent Smith, Reading Teacher
