Chicken Break!


This young picture book is simple fun with some wild and crazy chickens—including a counting element, naturally (1-10 and then backward from 10-1).

These chickens (ten to be exact) have one mission: to escape the coop and have some wild fun. One by one, the chickens break out. When all ten are out, they let loose! But chickens get tired, and after their wild day, one by one, they head back for some much needed relaxation. Even party animals need some rest. 

Filled with spunk and spirit, this is a fun and energetic way of engaging young readers to count to ten and from ten to one!


Cate Berry lives, writes and counts her chickens in Austin, Texas. She is the author of Penguin and Tiny Shrimp Don't Do Bedtime!, illustrated by Charles Santoso, which Publisher's Weekly called "a buoyantly subversive anti-bedtime story." Cate holds an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and speaks at schools, libraries, and conferences year-round.
