Chicken in the City by Liza Charlesworth

Country chicken LuLu is convinced that she needs more excitement in her life, so she packs her bags and heads to the big city. Upon arriving, she finds a plethora of nouns...and discovers that maybe 'exciting' city life isn't what she craves after all.

This entry in the popular Grammar Tales! series is ideal for early lessons on this part of speech. We love the Grammar Tales series--they're a perfect, fun intro to early lessons on basic grammar topics!  And, scholastic has another series similar to Grammar Tales. It's called 'Parts of Speech Tales' and one of the eight included books is a different book about nouns -- one that's similar in level and concept to Chicken in the City. It's called The Noun Hound. This book must be purchased as part of the boxed set so we are not reviewing it individually. Learn more on this series here.

Read-Aloud vs. Individual ReadingFor kids in first grade, this book will need to be a read-aloud rather than for individual reading, as the reading level will be too high for the majority of them. Most second graders may be able to read this book on their own as the year moves on, but may struggle a bit at the beginning of second grade, and third graders should be able to read this one on their own.
