by James Howe, illustrated by Randy Cecil

Brontorina wants to be a ballerina but she has difficulty fitting in the dance studio and finding a partner, not to mention that all the dance slippers are too small! But Brontorina knows she can be a ballerina anyway. With some creative thinking and two good friends, an entire dance studio learns that dinosuars can dance elegantly despite their ungainly size. This is a sweet story perfect for dinosaur lovers and ballerinas alike.Interrupting Chickenby David Ezra Stein
Candlewick, August 2010
Little Chicken loves bedtime stories-
"Yes I do!"
But she always interrupts her Papa, changing the ending-
"Of Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding and-"
Until her Papa tells her to-
"Write my own story! But then he falls asleep and-"
And Little Chicken learns what it's like to have a story interrupted. A fun story with bright illustrations, this book is perfect for parents and children to read aloud together with the child reading the part of-
"Interrupting Chicken!"

  1. I have two chicken books for you, both by Erica S. Perl:

    Chicken Butt (very funny, my five-year-old son's favorite)

    Chicken Bedtime is Very Early (lovely rhyming book).
