Black, Michael Ian, Chicken Cheeks, Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers. 2009. PICTURE BOOK. When a group of animals try and reach something at the top of tree, they hold each other up by their backsides. They’re in for a surprise at the end, however, when they reach their goal. A funny, unique, rhyming story about animals and different words we use in the English language for butt. A story well worth the read and purchase for any library. Pre-EL-EL (Toddler-2) ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Kira-HUN Public Library.
