‘Flamboyant and unique, Rooster is a fabulous character’ North Somerset Teachers’ Book Award

North Somerset Teachers’ Book Award certainly had some high praise in a recent book blog for Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans by Jessie Miller and illustrated by Barbara Bakos:

‘Flamboyant and unique, Rooster is a fabulous character whose individuality is to be applauded. Reminding us all that is it great to be different from others and have different tastes, this story makes an excellent starting point for discussions, both in class and out, about valuing this in ourselves- and respecting it in others.

The bouncy, rhyming text just begs to be read aloud…

‘He brushed off  all feelings of worry and doubt,

Then he cockled and doodled and dooed with a shout!’

…and the illustrations are full of details, perfect for discussing and developing stories about. Brilliant stuff! I’d love to know what Rooster is going to get up to next!’
