Funny quick reads for preschoolers: CHICKEN IN THE OVEN

(drawing by Mariah Matthews)

            When BFC (short for Big Fat Chicken) discovers it is HER turn to be Farmer Dill’s Sunday dinner she escapes the terrible chicken hook and finds a way to keep herself out of the oven. After a terror-filled day running from Farmer Dill she frantically lands on Big Brown Bull’s head. Farmer Dill who is a camera buff and enters her snapshots in on-line contests takes a winning picture. BFC is saved because she learns to smile; and for a chicken that is mighty hard to do.
