The little red chicken wakes up hungry for one thing! cookies! Papa thinks nursery rhymes would make a healthier morning treat–and an excuse to rest in bed a little longer. But with little Chicken, nothing happens quite as planned. Papa be nimble, Papa be quick, Papa read to your little chick. All through Humpty Dumpty, There Was an Old Woman, and Hickory, Dickory, Dock, the little red chicken has cookies on the brain. Soon the mice have abandoned clock climbing for a cookie feast and the Old Woman has a shoe full of crumbs. Caldecott Honoree David Ezra Stein’s lovable duo returns once again in this hilarious celebration of nursery rhymes, lazy mornings, and a good breakfast.
