DLTK's Book Breaks
The Rooster that Wouldn't Crow

by Artie Knapp

American Writer Artie Knapp was born in Chillicothe, Ohio, in 1973.  Knapp is a member of The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and graduated from Ohio University.  He lives in Cincinnati, Ohio with his wife, Priya.  He has kindly provided a number of stories for me to share with you and I've added a few activities to compliment the story.

I liked this one...  I'm 6' tall and my husband is, er, a fair bit shorter... so it sort of resonated with me *grin*.

Other ideas:  sing "Mr.  Harpole Had a Farm" instead of "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" -- when he has a "rooster" the kids will have fun singing with a "moo, moo here and a moo, moo there" *grin*
