I asked Rilla which book she wanted me to read to her: Interrupting Chicken or A Sick Day for Amos McGee.

She studied them for a moment, then jabbed one with her finger.

“I want An Interrupting Day for Chicken!”

(We read ’em both. Twice. They’re both wonderful books—selected because of the Cybils Shortlist Reading Challenge—both were finalists; Interrupting Chicken took the prize—and also because Amos won the Caldecott medal and Chicken won an Honor. Don’t miss them, even if you must do them one at a time.)

    This reminds me of my youngest’s favorite knock knock joke at that age:

    “Knock knock!”
    “Who’s there?”
    “Interrupting cow!”
    “Interrupting..”MOOOO!”
