“Dinnertime for Chickies” by Janee Trasler is the story of a sheep, a donkey and a pig who wanted to feed the chicks something different. The Chickies did not want to eat what the animals were giving them, because it was too drippy or too spicy and too chewy. The animals insisted the chickies give it a try and at the end they liked all of what they got to eat. So the sheep, donkey and pig gave them treats as a prize for trying new things. The chickies were very happy and their tummies were full.
I liked “Dinnertime for Chickies” by Janee Trasler very much, especially the purple color, the pictures and the rhymes. The story teaches us that it is always good to try new things even if I don’t like them.
