    1. I have first heard about Chicken Soup with Rice on a Weston Woods video where Carole King sings the song Chicken Soup with Rice on Really Rosie Chicken Soup with Rice is a book about the months of the year by Maurice Sendak that details the months of the year in a poetic way and will surely be an instant favorite for many children who love learning about the months of the year I have always loved Carole King s version of this classic book by Maurice Sendak and when I finally read this book, I wa [...]


    2. The edition I read, twice, was a tiny book It is a wonder how an entire year can fit inside the palm of one s hand and a soup based upon two key ingredients.As a system of verse, Sendak s treatise presents an important tool for the developing mind body to learn how to change with the seasons yet remain true to the essentia of homespun nourishment via tried and true ingredients For some that may seem a little wild, but, I think I must go check on my chicken and rice, now.


    3. As much as I love adore, think the world of Where the Wild Things Are, this is my favorite Maurice Sendak book I loved it when I was little I love it now I love reading it to my son when he is home sick in bed and requesting nothing but chicken soup with rice I love it

    5. Chicken Soup with Rice A Book of Months, written and illustrated by Maurice Sendak, is a long poem and each stanza stands for a different month Each stanza follows the same pattern and is about different times you can eat chicken soup with rice The final stanza talks about how chicken soup with rice is good to eat during all seasons of the year This book can be incorporated into the curricula when learning about poems and when learning about the different months of the year The book was simple y [...]


    6. A classic book of months I love it the illustrations, the rhymes, the repetition it s all so fun It was short enough to keep Caleb s attention now 7.5 months , but will also be great for him when he s older and learning about the months and seasons of the year.


    7. Garren, my kid wants to learn months so what pushes Chicken Soup with Rice across the counter This is my life plan.


    8. Carole King s Really Rosie album was my jam in the early eighties My Cool Aunt Edie gave me the record yes, the record and I wore that sucker out Only later did I discover the Nutshell Library and Maurice Sendak s genius little books that inspired Really Rosie And what should come across my desk today but Chicken Soup with Rice taking me back to the days of Cabbage Patch Kids and Strawberry Shortcake the real one, not the tween and rocking out to Alligators All Around and Pierre in mismatched so [...]


    9. This review also appears on my blog, Read at Home Mom.My fondest memory of Chicken Soup with Rice comes from my first grade classroom My teacher, Mrs Decker, would copy the poem for each month onto big easel paper and we would all read it together as a class We also listened to the Carole King recording of the song so many times, that even today, I have it memorized.The book takes us through the entire year using various references and analogies to chicken soup In January, the boy in the story e [...]

    12. It s hard to review this book with any amount of objectivity, since every time I so much as look at the cover, I hear my own five year old voice chanting Whoopee once, whoopee twice, WHOOPEE CHICKEN SOUP WITH RICE But I ll try.A charming children s book, perfect for small children who like poetry with a strong rhythm or beat It taught me my months, it taught me the basic pattern of the weather and the holidays, and it left me with an unresolved obsession to find out what sort of magic chicken so [...]


    13. I really loved this book It not only has a really fluid rhyme in it, but it also helps to teach about the months This book is about a little boy who shares his experiences with Chicken Soup and Rice in every month of the year The rhymes are easy to follow, and would help to keep young children s attention The illustrations of this book are wonderful, too I really liked the one where the wind is eating chicken soup off of the floor in the month of March I would use this book with a younger audien [...]


    14. I never read this book as a child, but a children s librarian recommended it to me when I was teaching my son about the months of the year I took to it immediately and loved reading it aloud to my 5 year old While reading it he told me he already knew the February rhyme, and I was confused about this since it was the first time I read it to him At a school open house months later, he showed me a huge flip poster with the Chicken Soup with Rice monthly rhymes written on it It s how they were lear [...]


    15. Chicken Soup with Rice is a book of poems about a guy who likes to eat chicken soup with rice There are poems for each month of the year and in each poem, there are repetitions of the words once and twice and chicken soup with rice It s a very funny poem book because it s so random I think that Sendak did a good job of keeping you interested It can also help to teach children the months of the year and provides the opportunity to do several different activities with it I also really love all of [...]

    17. I gave Sendak s tiny Nutshell Library to my daughter when she was about three We read those delightful concept books countless times Then we discovered the Weston Woods video Really Rosie which integrated an original storyline about a young diva with Sendak s books and music by the incomparable Carole King Jackpot Ever since, Chicken Soup with Rice, Pierre, and One Was Johnny sing in my mind What better way to learn the seasons and months than by reading, singing, and eating Chicken Soup with Ri [...]


    18. I love simple and fun, and what could be simple than Maurice Sendak s calendar of chicken soup love, or fun than Chicken Soup With Rice s celebration of imagination Naked boys In the Night Kitchen with Oliver Hardy, I suppose


    19. This book was really cute It goes through the twelve months of the year while describing what happens to the chicken soup with rice The pictures are also very cute and go somewhat along with the words I would recommend this book for anyone trying to teach the months of the year The words are all very descriptive and help visualize what is happening to the soup The soup is affected by the weather in each month I like how it s a simple book but it can teach students new words.


    20. This book is great for introducing the months of the year to young students Each month has its own special rhyme that always ends with chicken soup with rice each rhyme creates great visuals for young readers title of each rhyme is the name of the month Visually seeing the name of the month and having a rhyme to remember that month will aid all young students to learn about the months of the year.


    21. Maurice Sendak LOVES chicken soup with rice He eats it every month I m not kidding Every page he pronounces his affection for chicken soup with rice This is a FANTASTIC read aloud The only problem is that my hands are bigger than this tiny book I don t know if I just got a really small copy, but it is just too small I can t read this to than one person at a time I love this book.


    22. This is one of my all time favorite books I ve loved it since I was very young The silly poems and illustrations were perfect for my slightly twisted personality I also like to sing along to the poems It was a frequent check out from DuVall s school library This is a fun read aloud for one on one sharing The small format makes it difficult to share with a larger group If you can find a big book format, it would be great storytime book.


    23. I m already a fan of Sendak s work but this is amongst my favorite He once again captures the reader s imagination in with two things that I love food and humorous rhymes.The book takes you through the months and season of the year with a young man s simple request ,chicken soup with rice The book is also wonderful to sing, check out Carole King s singing the words from the book and join in Fun,fun fun


    24. I really enjoyed reading this story I would use it in my classroom to introduce months of the year My students could make their own calendar and keep it for themselves or give to someone as a gift I would even use the calendar to talk about what type of pictures we would draw for each month and how our seasons during the year I could use this book to discuss the amount of days we have in each month as well.


    25. I can t say how many times I went back to this book over the years I know I looked at it a lot even when I was a teen, and then when I was in grad school I read it countless times with Bela and the kids out at Dimondale Sendak and Gorey are close cousins in terms of psychologically compelling illustrations, ones that stand on their own and tell a thoroughly different story than the words alone could do not only a complementary match, but also with some stark counterpoint to the words.


    26. Maurice Sendak s book of monthly poems would make the perfect addition to a daily calendar routine The poems not only reinforce phonological awareness, but can also build fluency through repeated readings By revealing only one poem each month, students remain engaged as they anticipate and look forward to reading next month s poem Students could also make predictions about what next month s poem will be about.


    27. This is a fun little book, mixing the months and seasons with chicken soup with rice While I was a teacher, I remember getting this book and cassette tape from one of the student book clubs, and the tape had the story in song form, sung by Carole King Rereading this book today, I could still hear Carole King singing the words Fun illustrations too


    28. Maurice Sendak shows that it is always a good time for chicken soup with rice Whether slip sliding on ice or taking a peep in the cool fishy deep, once, twice chicken soup with rice As Sendak reviews the months of the years, he finds great ways to describe each month through rhyme Sendak s illustrations go perfectly with his story This little boys loves his chicken soup with rice.


    29. A charming, rhyming book that describes the circumstances under which you eat or don t chicken soup with rice, month by month This sounds like the kind of thing kids would make up while they re out of recess and sing over and over until they drive the teachers crazy It s cute and catchy and sounds really childlike but is skillfully written.
