Papa Rooster attempts to read his daughter bedtime stories, but is interrupted as she tries to calm the characters in the fairy tales he reads. With a sweet twist in the end, and plenty of humor, this book is great for sharing with older preschool children as well as those in elementary grades!

When Papa’s bedtime story of Hansel and Gretel gets a little too intense for Little Red Chicken, she can’t help herself from interrupting to make sure there’s a happy ending. “DON’T GO IN!

This is the best book I've found for teaching children to listen without constantly interrupting. I use it in September and from then on my kindergarten class knows exactly what I mean when I ask, "Are you being an interrupting chicken?" They get it!

This is a wonderful book and I recommend all children read this book. Its a fun and interesting book. Children will get a kick out of reading this and will learn not to interrupt people. It is a great lesson on how to teach children to not talk while others are talking as well. I think children will truly grasp the concept of this book in a funny way. Its a great lesson for teachers to teach when they are being interrupted in class by their students. Children will love the jokes and humor that comes from this great book!

A fairly brilliant book about a dad trying to read a story to his young daughter, except she keeps interrupting the story. Funny and drives the message home without being preachy. Kids love this book.

This book is about a little chicken who wants her papa chicken to read her a book. Throughout each story the little chicken interrupts her papa chicken. He then comes up with a way to get her to stop interrupting him.

When Papa read Little Red Chicken some of her favourite stories at bedtime, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Chicken Little and Hansel and Gretal, Little Red Chicken kept interrupting with her own endings, until they ran out of stories. That’s when they decided that Little Red Chicken would tell Papa one of her very own stories!

"It’s bedtime for Little Red Chicken and she wants Papa to tell her a bedtime story. Papa says, “You’re not going to interrupt the story, are you?” but Little Red Chicken just can’t help herself. As soon as the story gets going, out jumps the little red chicken into the story and saving the characters from danger. Will she ever get to sleep?"
