This is How Three Year Olds Treat Read Alouds

Interrupting Chicken

In a perfect world all stories would be this creative. Dad Rooster attempts to read traditional bedtime stories to his exuberantly talkative son. Suffice it to say that it doesn’t exactly go as planned because Jr. already knows these stories and wants to warn the protagonist of their impending doom.

Very young children (and apparently some chickens) like to treat read alouds as participatory events rather than performative events.  David Ezra Stein captures, bottles and books this entertaining phenomenon. (Well, it’s entertaining when I’m not the rooster.)
