What in the world would make a chicken smile?
When Farmer Dill comes to the chicken yard to choose the fattest chicken for her Sunday dinner, BFC (short for Big Fat Chicken) certainly isn't smiling. What can she do to convince Farmer Dill
not to choose her to be the Chicken in the Oven?
This hilarious story tells how BFC saves herself from the oven and becomes a famous model.
Delightfully illustrated by Dori Murnieks, 'Chicken in the Oven' will bring giggles
and laughter into your classs room as you read this 'read it again', or "I can read it mysefl' beginning reader story book.
You can buy her books at these links.
