Chicken Little and Henny Penny

I love reading two versions of the same tale and having children compare them. They are great at finding similarities and differences. The titles below are ones that I like to read with first graders.

 Chicken Little By Steven Kellogg
 This is a funny version from that has the twist of Foxy Loxy dressing up as a police officer to trick the unsuspecting poultry.
 Chicken Little By Rebecca and Ed Emberley
What I love most from this father daughter team is the colorful wacky illustrations. Some great one-liners in this one too.
Henny Penny By Jane Wattenberg
This version is a collage mash-up of real photographs and a lot of catchy rhymes. If Elvis wrote a version of Chicken Little this would be it!
