" Kambree's current favorite book! " said.

" We love these authors. The stories are perfect read alouds, instantly memorizable, almost like a fairy tale you've always known (like the Three Bears). Easy to recall and tell aloud again later. " said.

" This is an excellent rendition of a folktale from Liberia. The pictures are simple, bright, and beautiful, and the story is very funny and makes for a great storytime. The more body language you work into the telling, the better! " said.

" EL Skills - Print motivation, vocabulary, phonological awareness & narrative skills. Activities - Read, talk, & laugh. This is a wonderful book about using your brain to outsmart someone bigger and scarier than you. " said.

" Mrs. Chicken's vanity gets her into trouble. While admiring herself in the reflection of the river, Crocodile captures her and plans to eat her up. Mrs. Chicken is clever and finds a way out of the bind. She learns her lesson and we have some laughs.From the Dan people of Liberia. " said.

" Another winning Liberian tale told by Wond-Ldy Paye. In this clever trickster tale, Mrs. Chicken's vanity gets her captured by Crocodile at the river, but while she's being fattened up in Crocodile's hut, Mrs. Chicken comes up with a creative trick to convince Crocodile that they are, in fact, sisters. And you can't eat your sister, right? " said.

" I had never read this book in storytime, but it was a great one to read! Crocodile is about to have chicken for her dinner when chicken gets away long enough to hatch up a plan to convince crocodile that they are sisters! The kids howled at the idea of a chicken and a crocodile being sisters and were relieved that the chicken wasn't eaten! An awesome read-aloud! " said.

" This is a weird little book, but I do like how the chicken had to use her brains to solve her problem. I very much liked that the two protagonists were female, but I don't think this was necessarily progressive thinking on the part of the author. The solution to her problem hinges on the sex of the characters. " said.
