The Chicken Who Loved Books
Authored by Angela Hunt
Illustrated by Marrieta Gal
Unwrapping Some Illustrations for You
This is such a timely and relevant book. Our modern-day kids spend so much time on computers, with their video games, and glued to tv screens, so much so that the love and importance of the good old fashioned book is being shelved.
A little red hen exposes this truth to a wonderful little boy who brings his books to their coop and sits reading to them every day. The chickens are enthralled by the stories and look forward to his daily appearance and the adventures that shares with them through his reading.
Then one day the boy arrives with a little square box that makes sounds and has actions on it. He gets so absorbed in his video games that he totally ignores the little flock who want so much to be read to. Clever little red chicken discovers a way to relate to her human friend that although video games are fun, it's way more fun to read exciting books together. All her chicken friends unanimously agree.
The illustrations are wonderful, colourful and of full of expression and action. This is a delightful story that reminds the reader that books should not be underestimated or abandoned and that they are always fun when shared with others. I highly recommend this book.
