The Chicken Problem Trifecta

Colby Sharp and I are wild about Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson's The Chicken Problem. It is hilarious, a fun read-aloud, and a perfect choice for elementary school collections. Today, we are giving it the Sharp-Schu trifecta treatment. 

I asked my students to respond to The Chicken Problem's book trailer. Here is what they said: 

*"I like that the book trailer is animated."

*"The chickens in the background are so cute." 

*"The purple cat has the funniest expressions. He makes me laugh."

*"Peg's voice is perfect." 

*"The chicken's expressions are funny." 

"I like when Peg says, "Uh-oh." 

*"I want to know how Peg and Cat solve the chicken problem." 

*"I didn't want the book trailer to end. It felt like I was watching a cartoon." 

Colby Sharp's students wrote a review and interviewed Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson. 

I am giving away one copy of The Chicken Problem.
