Chicken Chook: A greedy bird that likes to cook by Sally Mooney
A very funny picture book with rhyming text for kids aged 2-6 years. It is about learning to share, patience and eating well!
You and your kids will fall in love with the two main characters, Chicken Chook and Rob the Rabbit. The illustrations are superb and the poetic nature of the book makes reading it out loud, as much fun as hearing it read.
Chicken Chook is a very greedy bird that loves to cook. He is also very clumsy! His friend, Rob the Rabbit is a little more sensible and well mannered. One day, when having a picnic together, Chicken Chook has some hilariously funny and crazy mishaps due to his greediness.
A few lines from the book:-
When eating out with his friend called Rob
They start to munch on a corn on the cob
Don’t eat it all,’ says Rob with a glare
“You know it’s good manners to always share.”
Chook tucks in with a bite and a tear
And all of a sudden it flew up in the air
WHOOSH goes the cob up high in the sky….
It falls straight down, hitting Chook in the eye
‘OUCH that hurt,’ said poor Chook
‘Well you shouldn’t be so greedy,’ said Rob with a look
After more mishaps, there is no food left to eat, so Rob suggests they go home to cook a meal. Chook is delighted as this is his most favourite thing to do. Chook learns about sharing and patience from his friend Rob. Together they make a vegetable pie as all new foods they like to try! Kids will also have fun naming the vegetables that go into making the pie. The story ends well with Chook and Rob feeling happy and full.
