Chickens to the Rescue by John Himmelman

Chickens to the Rescue

February 2015
Recommended for fans of chickens, picture books

The Greenstalks seem to be having a rash of trouble this week. First, a watch down the well


then a lack of dinner


followed by a missing book report,


Ernie the duck going joyriding,


Milky the cow stuck in the tree,


lost sheep,


and a spilled breakfast.


Thankfully, the chickens are there to save the day!


Minimal text, silly humor, clever illustrations reminiscent of Waldo and Steven Kellogg made this one a delight.

Plus, chickens!
