Dot the Chicken it a little chicken. But when her own actions cause one of her mama’s eggs to roll away, she screws up her courage and rises to the occasion.
Sauer writes a terrific story about screwing up your courage and Taylor’s details add to the perfection. I love seeing Dot in her pink underwear superhero costume, and being afraid of the occasional lawn ornament made me snort! Such fun to share – you will needing this for story time.
