About the Book


This week we feature this fun book, 'Chickens Can't See in the Dark' by Kristyna Litten. A quirky tale about a determined chicken - Little Pippa - coming up with and sticking to a plan that not one chicken in Sunnyside Farm believed in!


When Mr Benedict tells his class on Sunnyside Farm that chickens can't see in the dark, Pippa sets out to discover the secrets of night vision.


After visiting the library - and then the farm shop - Pippa takes a wheelbarrow of carrots to Mother Hen's Pantry where she cooks up the most delicious carroty banquet ever seen. She then invites her feathered friends to share it. They're all sceptical about what difference eating so many carrots will make, but everything is so tasty that they soon gobble down every last mouthful.


At last, on a starry, moonlit evening, the chickens discover the delights of seeing in the dark and Little Pippa's plucky determination is celebrated all night long.

Little Pippa is no headless chicken. In fact, she was quite the opposite!


When Mr Benedict tells his class on Sunnyside Farm that chickens can't see in the dark, Pippa sets out to discover the secrets of night vision.


After visiting the library - and then the farm shop - Pippa takes a wheelbarrow of carrots to Mother Hen's Pantry where she cooks up the most delicious carroty banquet ever seen. She then invites her feathered friends to share it. They're all sceptical about what difference eating so many carrots will make, but do you think Little Pippa's brilliant plan will work?
