Chicken Wants a Nap

(3) PS Illustrated by Monique Felix. A chicken trying to nap on a rainy day is continually foiled (e.g., the barn is dry, but the cows are too loud). The back-and-forth "good day"/"bad day for a chicken" tension is resolved when the rain stops and the chicken fills her belly: "it's a bad day to be a worm." Gorgeous, personality-rich full-spread illustrations augment a humorous and satisfying story.
