Reading Together

New Book: Chicken Cheeks: The beginning of the ends by Michael Ian Black

This is one of the funniest children’s books I’ve read! I laughed out loud when I read it and then read it to my co-worker who was in tears when she heard it.  This is Michael Ian Black’s first children’s book.  I have been a fan of his since The State and Ed and was interested in seeing what he would write for children.  Some parents may not see the humor in it or find it appropriate but I think kids will love it. 

To get right down to it the book is about animal’s rear ends.  From chicken cheeks to deer rear.  They are climbing on top of each other to reach a bee hive.  But unfortunately, they all fall down and the ends go flying. 

I really enjoyed reading it and I’ve shared it with my daughter but I don’t think I could read it aloud to a group of kids especially in a school setting. I think it is a great book for parents to read to older kids, especially boys, who would appreciate the humor a little.  If not the illustrations are cute too and the storyline is easily followed.
