Madelyn turned 3 this weekend and her favorite gifts were books. She loves books. One of her favorite books right now is My Name is Chicken Joe. We read it every night. The story is about a cat named Chicken Joe and other animals whose names don't quite fit. Featuring whimsical illustrations and an easy to remember 'chorus', it's nearly impossible for me to not to start singing the story.
My Name is Chicken Joe is a book/cd set and is a fun book for beginning readers and equally as fun for toddlers being read to. Both of my kids love the 11-song CD which I consider to be a mashup of folk, rock, and country style music. This CD will be one that we listen to on our road trips this summer. Trout Fishing in America has been nominated for four Grammy Awards, Parents Choice Gold, American Library Awards, and others. Trout Fishing in America have earned widespread critical praise from USA Today, Billboard and The Los Angeles Times.
You can buy the My Name is Chicken Joe book/cd set on the Trout Fishing in America website here.
