This relatable and entertaining addition to the popular series makes for a lively read-aloud. Fans of the first two Interrupting Chicken books will be excited to pick up Interrupting Chicken: Cookies for Breakfast to see what antics Chicken will use to interrupt story time. This story follows the format of the first two books in the series, making it feel positively familiar. Like its predecessors, Cookies for Breakfast takes readers through three examples of a literary device before giving Chicken a chance to create an original. This time, the focus is on rhyming, which is not only fun but also an important learning tool for young readers. Much of the book is told through dialogue between Chicken and Papa, which includes jokes and banter that parents and kids can relate too. However, it may get tedious for younger readers who could struggle keeping up with the back-and-forth. The use of classic nursery rhymes can make reading this book an engaging, interactive experience.

David Ezra Stein continues to wow readers with impressive illustrations that combine two very different styles -- the style of Chicken's and Papa's story, and that of the nursery rhymes. Because the story centers on the dialogue, readers will enjoy spending a little extra time checking out the action-packed illustrations.
