‘A wonderful book to use in a Key Stage One classroom’ Story Snug enchanted by Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans!

Catherine at Story Snug just gave a rave review for new picture book Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans by Jessie Miller and illustrated by Barbara Bakos:

Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans is definitely one of the most eye catching picture book titles that we’ve come across. It really invited us to open the book and we weren’t disappointed! Rooster’s story is as funny as the title suggests but it also shows that it takes courage to be yourself, regardless of the reactions of others.

The easy to read rhyming text bounces as flamboyantly as Rooster and we love Barbara Bakos’ illustrations. She has captured Rooster’s over-the-top character by portraying him in some wonderful poses, the cover illustration is a great example! The description of Rooster’s jeans is brilliant and we love the illustration showing him strutting out into the farmyard, the animals’ disbelieving expressions are very funny and we especially like the way that the crow takes his sunglasses off!

Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans would be a wonderful book to use in a Key Stage One classroom to stimulate discussion about how it’s ok to have different ideas from others and that having our own style is important. I can imagine a classroom wall display showing animals dressed up and celebrating their own uniqueness 🙂

Thanks, Catherine!
