Rosie’s Walk by Pat Hutchins

Rosie's WalkI do so love an oldie but goodie.  Rosie’s Walk was published in 1968.  Rosie, a hen, is going for a walk.  Little does she realize that there is a hungry fox following her everywhere.  As Rosie walks, fox steps on a rake, falls into a pond, falls into a haystack, has a bag of flour emptied on him and then falls into a wheelbarrow which rolls into bee hives. Rosie completely misses all of the action behind her.  She finally ends up at her chicken coop, just in time for dinner.  Every time I turned the pages, my students would shriek with laughter when they saw what happened to the poor fox.  They were very cute.

I read this to my TK (Transkinder) class, with students who just missed the cutoff for kindergarten.  They absolutely loved this book.  I then tried it with my preschoolers and found that they had a harder time following this book.  I’d recommend it for TK through 1st grade audiences.

So if you’re looking for a quick, funny read for your young students, here it is.
