Rosie's Walk

written and illustrated by Pat Hutchins

Rosie the hen went for a walk and got back in time for dinner. Little did she know a clumsy fox had followed all the way, trying to catch her.

Rosie the hen went for a walk and got back in time for dinner. The colorful illustrations are simple but tell what turns out to be an exciting story.  Large font and limited text make this an excellent book for emergent readers. It adapts very well to mini-lessons on making and checking predictions and adverbials of place.

I Like This Book

Rosie keeps marching confidently forward while the fox is foiled by a series of mishaps.  The fox's story is all in the pictures so it is a great book for learning to note details.
