Chicken in Space by Adam Lehrhaupt -- ADVISABLE

Lehrhaupt, Adam Chicken in Space, illustrated by Shahar Kober. PICTURE BOOK. HarperCollins, 2016. $17.99.

Zoey is a dreamer and a planner, and a very persistent ... chicken. When she decides to go up into space, it looks as if the odds are stacked against her. But thanks to her determination and her positive attitude, she might just have the best space adventure of any chicken in the history of the universe.

I love Zoey's belief in herself despite the nay-sayers around her, and how she uses her creativity and determination to solve problem after problem. Most of all, I love that her positive attitude helps her make this the best day ever. With its adorable pictures and positive message, it would work especially well in a character lesson on growth mindset, persistence, or optimism.
