The "Interrupting Chicken" by David Ezra Stein, had a great story line. It was different because we don't usually read children's books that involve only the father and daughter. We often see both parents in a story and if it is a single parent it's usually the mother that is present. Having the father be the only parent made the book have some sentimental value, in my opinion. One the other hand, the author had a creative way in developing the structure of this book. As I was reading this book I was amazed at how the "Dad's story telling" was actually the reader viewing the story within this story. It was also amazing how we got to see the interrupting chicken get involved in the story, allowing us to see when she interrupted. I have never read a similar story to this and it's been a pleasure reading this Caldecott Medal winner. The art that went into this book was also incredible, it helped tell the story.

Shelly Shaffer I loved how the author changed the "point of view" throughout the story and used the postmodern approach to draw the readers in even more. It was just a cute, cute book. I had fun reading it with you during class.
