Little red chicken is excited about his bed time story. So excited in fact that he is always interrupting the story his papa is reading so that the main characters in the book are not in danger of being afraid or disappointed. Papa is always very gentle in his reminders to not interrupt and always graciously chooses another story to attempt at reading. The illustrations in this picture book are very vibrant. There are wonderfully contrasting illustrations for the stories papa is reading with fun quotation bubbles from chicken. As a mother story time before bed is also my favorite time of the day. This is a great picture book to read to your own little interrupters.
