BLUE HILL, Maine –Â The Blue Hill Public Libraryâ€™s â€śChickadee Clubâ€ť will be reading a new book at 11 a.m. SaturdaysÂ in December: Interrupting Chicken, a 2011 Caldecott Honor Book written and illustrated by David Ezra Stein. Temporarily replacing the Libraryâ€™s old â€śSaturday Stories,â€ť the Chickadee Club is for kids aged five to ten years and features one or more books each month that are in the running for the Chickadee Award: A Maine Childrenâ€™s Choice Picture Book Project. Kids will listen to the story and do fun activities that will help them explore the storyâ€™s meaning.
Interrupting Chicken is the story of a father-daughter pair of chickensâ€”the father is reading bedtime stories to his daughter, and she constantly interrupts to change the course of the story, especially if it starts to get scarey. The book is dramatically illustrated with intense colors that kids appreciate.
The Chickadee Award is given annually to a picture book published the previous year, as selected by Maine students, teachers and librarians. The Blue Hill Libraryâ€™s Chickadee Club will be involved in helping to choose this yearâ€™s winner. For more information call Pat at 374-5515.
