The chickens have been at the apples again in The Apple Tree: Chickens Laugh Out Loud: Book Two by Jane Finch. The chickens have planned their attack and they worked as a team. The apples began to pile up as they jumped on the branches and those on the ground got the first pickings. The chickens on the ground ate as if there were no tomorrow. They were so full that their tummies hurt. They felt ashamed and their heads were on the ground and their tail feathers were down. After a few hours they were chirpy and perky. What did they do after that? Read the story to find out.
The story is adorable and the illustrations by Jack Foster are wonderful, making the story palpable to young readers. It is fun to see the chickens getting into mischief and having sore tummies. The story is appealing not only because of the action and colorful illustrations but also because of the coloring pages at the end of the book. That makes the book fun and interactive and tutors can use it in classrooms for group activities and interactive sessions. It is a good book for young readers to own. Storybooks like this are fascinating for child readers; the colorful pictures and fun pages to color pull them into the book and will keep them occupied. I am sure readers will be waiting for the next book from this author to find out what the chickens are up to and their next bit of mischief.
