I got a chicken for my birthday - Laura Gehl ; illustrated by Sarah Horne
A girl is disappointed when she receives a chicken as a birthday gift from her abuela, until she realizes the chicken is planning a bigger present for her special day.
“What I wanted for my birthday: Tickets to an amusement park.
What Abuela gave me instead: A chicken
But this chicken is no ordinary chicken. It’s too busy to lay eggs. It has a lot of friends.
It’s even giving me orders!
What kind of birthday present is a chicken?
As it turns out...
THE BEST BIRTHDAY PRESENT EVER!"
