Chicken said “Cluck!” by Judyann Ackerman Grant pictures by Sue Truesdell

This is part of the “I Can Read!” series. It is great for those beginning readers who want a short, sweet story. Basically two kids decide to plant pumpkin seeds. A very eager chicken wants to be involved in the process, and of course the kids don’t want the chicken around for the planting, watering, weeding, etc. Of course some pesky grasshoppers come and it is the chicken to the rescue to save the pumpkins.

Great pictures, great story. If you know a beginning reader, you should check out this book from your local library. A 5 star easy reader is not all that common!
