Descriere

With whimsical illustrations by Paulette Bogan, Aaron Reynolds has created a hilarious picture book about one rooster's quest for culinary delight.

What happens at Nuthatcher Farm when the chickens get tired of the same old chicken feed? The rooster hatches a plan, of course! With a pinch of genius, a dash of resourcefulness, and a little pilfering from the farmer's garden, the chickens whip up a scrumptious snack of chips and salsa. When the rest of the barnyard gets a whiff of the spicy smells and want to join in, it can mean only one thing . . . FIESTA! But when the big day arrives, all their spicy southwestern supplies are gone! It seems that Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher have caught on to the flavor craze as well, and the only thing left for the animals to do is to try a new culinary style-ooh la la!

    Rooster is sick of eating the same thing day in and day out, so he decides to spice things up (literally) by making some salsa to share with the other chickens. His culinary experiment sparks other barnyard animals to try whipping up some other Mexican food treats like guacamole and nachos, which in turn inspires Rooster to call for a fiesta!This book was on a recommended list of Cinco de Mayo picture books. It is not actually about Cinco de Mayo itself, but I think it would make a fine compliment to informational texts in a classroom setting. It's also just a fun book to read -- a little bit whimsical with a happy ending for all and upbeat language, including just enough of those repetitive lines that kids love without being overly redundant. The illustrations are a little more cartoon-ish then I usually enjoy, but I think it works well with this silly plot. I highly recommend it for sharing with young readers in one-on-one or group settings, whether it's near Cinco de Mayo or not!

    This book was just ok. I loved the pictures, but the storyline was little bit awkward. I did appreciate that the rooster got his inspiration from a cooking show! I thought that aspect of the book was delightful. The story promotes trying new things. The illustrations are fun and colorful and depict the story very well.

    Maybe 3.5 stars, as it wasn't all that special. Awfully darn cute, though, with a nice rhythm to read aloud, and three delicious healthy recipes in the back!

    This book explores southwestern cuisine. It also has Spanish terms such as "Ole".

    A fantastic book about farm animals who are tired of the routine food given to eat. The rooster is inspired by the Mexican cooking shows the farmer's wife is watching and decides to make salsa. He's rebellion and fiesta late at night with his fellow chickens and salsa and chips, inspires the other barnyard animals to seek alternatives to their slops and feed. After each animals acquires the necessary items, often at the expense of the farmer's wife's dinners, the animals have a fiesta and shout "Ole!" The books is an excellent story for just a read-aloud or to tie into an activity on cause and effect. The illustrations are fun to look at the mouse that shows up on every page is fun for kids to talk about it and wonder if he is the brain behind the operations.

    This book was about chickens and pigs and ducks. They made food. -- review by Sean (5). Mom adds: This picture book was very cute and fun to read. I like the emphasis on making tasty food and there are even recipes at the back. We will try to make the Quackamole tonight.
