Reynolds, A 2005 Chicks and Salsa New York, NY Bloomsbury Publishing The chickens where tired of their food so the rooster set out to solve the problem He gets an idea and provides them with chips and salsa This creates an effect, inspiring the other barnyard animals to try something different from guacamole to nachos This then inspired all of them to plan a fiesta only to be hit with a surprise, the humans have stolen all their ingredients Furious, the rooster sneaks into the humans kitchen and creates a new authentic mealThis book is so cute and great for a childs imagination The overall theme is the willingness to try something completely new The media within really portrays the different food types the animals eat, for example the rooster is wearing a parka I think really the only way I can implement this into my class is use it as a fun book because there really isn t any central meaning to it. The chickens of Nuthatcher Farm were sick of chicken feed, so the rooster stepped in to solve this problem himself The chickens along with the rooster began sneaking into the garden for tomatoes and onions to make a much exciting and satisfying meal salsa Eventually word spread and even the ducks and pigs began creating their own dish I love the humor in the book especially when the bull practices his dance for the fiesta but no one knows where he got the sombrero from I love the vividly illustrated pictures and how the recipes are included in the back This story would be great to teach sequencing and fractions using the recipes in the back. The barnyard animals find a way to spice up their hum drum everyday food Cute story about spicing things up around the farm Chickens, ducks, and pigs find a way to spice up their traditional slop food by adding a few special ingredients The hilarious and bold watercolor illustrations really make this book come alive for me Also, this book could be a vocabulary word study text, as it has some excellent words aromas, satisfied, cuisine, enticing, pilfered, sumptuous, and savory The sneaky mice in this book bring a special element to the plot on every page, you can see that they are involved in some sort of spy work or bargaining It would be really fun to read this with a child and read in unison each time the animals shout, Ol This is one of my favorite farm themed picture books. So cute and quirky This book is about farm animals who get tired of their normal food I like using this book with my ESL students because it has repetition and many new vocabulary words It also has many dishes that my Latino students are familiar and they get excited when they read hear them Then, they always want to make a personal connection to the story as well This book can range from late primary to upper elementary because of some of the higher level vocabulary terms.
