Book Review: Chickens in the Know/ Chickens on the Go by Aunt Judy
Chickens in the Know
Author: Aunt Judy (AKA Judith A. McEwen)
These two books are an adorable way to show children about the world around them. In Chickens on the Go, the wonderful rhyming text tells children that it doesn't matter where we're from, "We're all chickens---let's have fun". Chickens around the world are depicted in the charming illustrations demonstrating that color, shape, or country doesn't change the fact that we are all the same.
Chickens in the Know does a fabulous job of teaching children that "It doesn't matter what we do, the world needs me....the world needs you!" What a fun way to tell children how important each of them is to the world around them.
I loved these two books. The website offers kids pages with activities and learning guides for teachers. The books can be read over and over again for fun but kids will gain so much more from the hidden messages of worth and self-esteem.
