Description

On a teeny little farm, in an itty-bitty coop, a very small hen laid a big, giant egg. And out of this egg came one big, humongous . . . something. "It's big!" clucked the little rooster. "It's enormous!" clucked the small chicken. "It's anelephant!" peeped the smallest chicken. "Run for your lives!" they cried. No matter how they try, these clueless chickens can't make sense of the gigantic new member of their familyuntil he saves the day. With wacky, laugh-out-loud humor and silliness to spare, this BIG twist on the classic Chicken Little story lends a whole new perspective to what it means to be chicken.

    Really fun to read aloud. Especially after reading Chicken Little. A Large egg hatches and a big chicken pops out. The other chickens don't know what it is and their guesses are pretty out there, like an elephant, or an umbrella. The kids loved it and it ties up happily in the end.

    Chicken Big is a great read-aloud book for all ages. I love Chicken Big! I am impressed with the author's writing and story telling. I think he is pure genius. Keith Graves mentioned that his grandpa read stories to him each night in his bio. First I began reading this delightful children's book in one sitting and howled aloud. As a grandma, it was pure delight to read this winning book to my grandson who giggled with glee and then my husband overheard the story and chuckled as well.The story starts with the main character, a really big chicken called Chicken Big who was born from a hen egg. The story line moves along with other not-so-smart chicken character's being introduced from the chicken community who are trying to figure out just what this enormous someone really is. Perhaps he's an elephant. At any rate, Chicken Big is just too big to fit into their group so they boot him out. Soon all the little chickens are clucking with excitement (you know how they get) and seem to be alarmed that all of their chicken eggs have been stolen by a sly red fox. No worries, this story has a very happy ending because Chicken Big saves the day and happily is accepted in the chicken community. There is definitely room for this big dude in their coop!Charming book with great pictures and humor, plus a classic fable. It's great to laugh, too. ***** stars. I highly recommend Chicken Big to kindergarten-5th grade teachers, parents of little ones and then to all precious grandparents who love those endless laughing moments of complete hysteria, entertainment with education, for sure with their grandchildren. (Makes a great gift book, too).

    This BIG, hilarious twist on the classic Chicken Little story lends a whole new perspective to what it means to be chicken.Look up in the barnyard, it's an ostrich, it's a tractor... nope, it's just the biggest chicken you've ever seen! Chicken Big is confused about his size as are the other chickens in the coop, who mistake him for many things including an elephant and an over-sized umbrella there to keep them dry. As someone who raises chickens, this adorable children's story kept me chuckling all the way through. A true delight that my rural boys also appreciated and giggled right along with me.This endearing, uplifting tale about kindness, courage, and "fitting in" is illustrated with fun, bright, big pictures every child will love. Highly recommended for kids of all ages and chicken lovers everywhere!

    Top notch review for many reasons....one of which is that while this is a picture book aimed at audiences approximately 4-8 years old, it can truly be enjoyed by one and all. The crazy/fun little chickens and their lack of understanding about the "BIG" disturbance in their family circle provides BIG fun. Expressed through comical quotes and thought bubbles, you'd think that'd be enough...nope. The author and illustrator worked hand in hand and provided wonderful illustrations to match the mood of each page. Really, just try not to laugh at the BIG chicken's facial expressions as the story progresses...I'll bet you find yourself smiling the whole way through. Happy reading!

    This book made me laugh from start to finish! The illustrations, the text, everything contributes to making "Chicken Big" a very funny story.
    The themes are acceptance of diversity and friendship. A great read for children and adults alike.
