7/8/2019 ~ This book left me a bit ho-hum; I didn't really see the point. However, I did enjoy the repeating sentence "I got a chicken for my birthday and..." The list of things the chicken wanted was funny, and I can see some interesting conversations with kids about what the chicken might be planning to build. I would have liked some follow-through with the Old Lady Who Swallowed, 12 Days of Christmas, and Mary and her lamb, perhaps hints in the amusement park.
