" This is about a boy who over hears that the chickens are planning on going on strike. This is a fun book to read to your students to talk about what a strike is! Can the village people get them to go off of strike? Read this book to find out! " said.

" Leo couldn't get enough of this book even though I thought it left some questions unanswered. The illustrations are lovely. " said.

" read to 5th SWAS, 6th, at Creeksideread to 5th at Highland " said.

" Who wants respect? Chickens, that's who! A story for labor and animal rights education... " said.

" I liked this book for no other reason than the labor dispute being between the chickens and the people who swing chickens over the head as a way of cleansing their bad deeds. Way to enlighten us on the chicken's point of view in all this. A fun story for Rosh Hashanah. " said.

" This is a fun story that not only teaches about an unusual Jewish custom and about Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but also has a moral tale about being a better person. The illustrations are fantastic - they have an old fashioned style, but still look fresh and alive. Our girls enjoyed this story and it's great to learn about different customs and religious ceremonies. " said.

"Here's a Rosh Hashanah tale that reminds me of Click clack moo, cows that type because the animals get fed up with the "abuse" they suffer at the hands of Jewish people celebrating Rosh Hashanah. They decide to strike! Reminds me so much of the cows demands that they make on Farmer Brown. I love how the author has taken the very old tale and turned it into something families can share together. What child won't delight in reading about a good kid (not unlike themselves) who overhears the chickens discussing their demands?

" said.

"There is a lot of text in this book. The story and format reminded me of the Zelinsky books we looked at in class. The story is appropriate for younger kids, and features lots of pictures they could look at while you read. However, if a child is reading on his or her own, it is probably a better book for those ages 9-11. So, I guess the age span could be preschool through grade school. The story is great, about a village in Russia and a boy who is living there while a revolution is going on. It is also a story about the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah, and could be used as a teaching tool. Otherwise comparable to the Zelinsky books, the illustrations aren't as beautiful, but are still nice. " said.
