I was thrilled to see Chicken Wants a Nap on School Library Journal’s Fuse #8 31 Days, 31 Lists picture book round-up by Betsy Bird!

Of the picture books, she wrote, “…they are, in many ways, the bread and butter of the children’s book world. Their sales allow publishers to take a chance on other kinds of books. They hold a kind of sway on the public imagination that novels and comics still only dare dream of attaining. And, happily, they’re short enough that I got to see a nice wide swath this year. Here then are the books I’d bury in a time capsule for the future, if I could. A brief, glorious glimpse of a time that was and a year that, crummy as it was, had a couple bright spots in it for the youngest of readers.”

Chicken is keeping some amazing company in this list – so if you’re looking for some new picture books for yourself or a little one in your life, I would check it out!
