Summary

Join Zoey the chicken for a tour of her unusual classroom in this celebration of creativity, friendship, and tasty snacks. When Zoey decides to turn the barn into a school and become a teacher, everyone in the barnyard learns that the best part of school is using your imagination.

Named one of the best books to help kids get ready for a new school year by Brightly.com, which commented: "Zoey the chicken wants to be a teacher, so she invites her farm friends to join her in a new school. Animal imaginations run wild as Zoey introduces her new students to all the fun that learning has to offer."

From the hilarious author-illustrator duo that brought you Chicken in Space, this story about playful approaches to activities like reading, math, and recess will inspire any young adventurer to get excited for school.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In this companion to Chicken in Space (2016), that cute chick Zoey comes up with another idea to delight her barnyard friends, especially her admirer, a pig named Sam. This time, Zoey wants to go to school like the kids who live near the farm. Sam has long wanted to go because he's heard there are snacks. But Zoey has loftier goals. Gathering up crayons and books, she proceeds to make a classroom in the barn, though Sam does it find it somewhat lacking (Where's the teacher? And where are the snacks?). Zoey takes on the role of teacher, and though she doesn't quite use her school supplies for the intended purpose, she does something better: she teaches her students about imagination. Humor abounds in the appealing digital art, especially in the form of the story's characters, from love-struck Sam to creative Zoey, who knows that crayons aren't for coloring they are for creating adventures. The short text makes this a good read-aloud for prospective students, who will learn there's more to school than snacks.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Having conquered the skies in Chicken in Space, Lehrhaupt's poultry protagonist, Zoey, steps into the role of teacher at a barnyard school. Not every animal is convinced of Zoey's qualifications or curriculum ("Books are for reading! Crayons are for coloring! And you can't skip math!" protests Clara the cow), but Zoey's energy and outside-the-box thinking win the (school) day. Kober's grainy, posterlike images manage to feel vintage and contemporary in one fell swoop, and readers will respect the outside-the-box wisdom in Zoey's assertion that books are for "building imagination" and crayons for "creating adventures."
