Recommends it for: Fans of Zoey the Chicken / Beginning Readers Looking for Entertaining Tales
Zoey the chicken and her best piggy-pal Sam, whose adventures began in the picture-books Chicken in Space and Chicken in School , return in this third story, this time setting out for the North Pole. Advised by Clara the cow to wear their mittens, they oblige, although not in the way she intended. Fortunately, Sam's mitten unravels as he and his gallant galline friend go a-wandering, leaving them a return route when they have finally reached their destination...

Like its predecessors, Chic

First sentence: Zoey stepped out of the barn. So did her best pig, Sam. Fresh snow covered the farm. "We can be explorers!" said Zoey. "It's cold," said Sam. "Arctic explorers!" said Zoey.

Premise/plot: Zoey LOVES adventures. Sam, well, he's a great friend, a sidekick, to Zoey. Even if he doesn't always show the same passion or zeal for adventure as his friend does. In this one, the two set off to discover the pole. Will they find it? Well, they'll find something that's for sure!

My thoughts: Thi
I should have known that any beginning reader by Adam Lehrhaupt would be both useful for literacy and freakin' hilarious. Yeti, indeed! I love the comic timing of this book, and I continue to be a great fan of Lehrhaupt. More!
This book is an early reader book Level 1. My daughter isn’t close to reading yet, so I read this book to her. It has short, simple sentences for early readers, though.

My daughter sat through the whole book. There weren’t many long sentences that lost her interest. She seemed to like this book okay, but it wasn’t the most enjoyable, since it’s definitely more for helping kids learn to read.

We will probably revisit this book as she grows, and gets to the reading stage.

Fun story about an enthusiastic chicken and her reluctant pig friend. Zoey wants to take a trip to the North Pole, even though she's not sure how to get there. Sam follows along, accidentally unraveling his mitten. When they finally find the North Pole (a scarecrow pole) they follow Sam's yarn back home.

Zoey the chicken and Sam the pig decide to go out adventuring in the snowy world. They are going to be arctic explorers! They wear their mittens (in an unconventional way) and set out to explore the world beyond their fence.

A cute winter adventure with some slightly silly animals that beginning readers should find utterly delightful. Sure to make kids smile if not laugh.

Adam Lehrhaupt's language is perfect for this age group. The words are simple but the story and illustrations have a lot of child appeal. The chicken named Zoey reminds me a bit of Minerva Louise--a bit misguided but always acting with a big heart--and I adore her relationship with "her best pig, Sam." What a couple of sweeties!

With their mittens firmly on their heads, Zoey the chicken and Sam the pig boldly step out into the snowy farmyard in the hope of discovering the North Pole. In this delightfully silly story, they discover a scarecrow disguised as a yeti. Since it’s sitting atop a pole, they decide their goal has been accomplished, and the pair retire to the barn for some warm refreshments.
This book reminds me of me with some of my friends - "Hey, let's do this crazy thing!" "Ehhh, I'm not too excited about it, but why not?" (Who is in which part varies.)

Also, I was very impressed by the mitten that kept leaving string behind but never got any smaller.

Cute story for beginning readers.

Zoey and Sam go on an arctic adventure on the farm and even run into a Yeti! I think this is my favorite of the Zoey stories so far, and only partly because her mitten hat makes me think of Minerva Louise.
Zoey, an adventurous chicken, and her pig, Sam, go in search of the North Pole, after all, it's so cold outside. Through fences and up big hills they journey. How do they know when they've arrived? Just ask the Yeti ... or is that a scarecrow?
Very cute story and adorable illustrations.

decided not to do for storytime because of the minerva louise chicken in the snow book. it is cute, could be interactive, was not very big, would be hard to see in the back of the room.

Cute, silly, and easy for kids to follow along. It’s also a great book for kids who are learning to read.

Adorable book about an adventurous pair.
Two farm animal friends play in the snow together. With some imagination and some humor, they have a great time and make their way home to a cozy evening.
