Children's Book Week
Book Giveaway: "Chicken Butt!"

Chicken Spaghetti's Fourth Anniversary

Yep, that's right. It's been four fine years of blogging about my adventures with children's books and reading—and chickens. 

To celebrate the occasion and the new season, I've chosen a passage from Arnold Lobel's classic Frog and Toad Are Friends.

"Toad, Toad, wake up. It is May now."

"What?" said Toad.

"Can it be May so soon?"

"Yes, said Frog.

"Look at your calendar."

Toad looked at the calendar.

The May page was on top.

Why, it is May!" said Toad

as he climbed out of bed.

Then he and Frog 

ran outside

to see how the world

was looking in the spring.

Happy May, and happy reading, as always. Stay tuned tomorrow for a book giveaway.

Perfect choice. I think I'll go around saying, "Why, it IS May" today.

Happy FOUR YEARS! Wow.

Happy 4th Blog Birthday, Susan!!

Congratulations to Chicken Spaghetti! Four years is a long time in the blogging world. (I love Frog and Toad-great choice.)

Four blog years is like, what, twenty people years? Happy Days to you and your blog!
