The Singing Chick by Victoria Stenmark

The Singing Chick by Victoria Stenmark

I like this story.  There’s a song in it (I make up a completely different tune in my head each time I tell the story).  It’s fun to do with puppets as well.

As always I will sum up the story and not tell it completely, in respect to the author.

On a beautiful day, an egg lays on the ground.  It hatches, surveys all there is to see then breaks out into song:

The sky is so blue / the sun is so yellow!
The trees are so green / and I’m a hap-py fellow!
Peep – Peep!  Pirrippi! Peep-peep!  Peep-peep!

a happy fellow....

So, the Happy Fellow goes on his way and meets a fox ….

... hello lunch!

The Fox eats the Chick who breaks out into song … by the time he gets to the “Happy fellow”   part, he is terribly confused especially while he skips into the forest.  In the forest he meets up with a…

He has a headache!
Wolf.  Who has a headache and thinks all this singing stuff is for the birds!  He tells the fox to pipe down, but Fox can’t help it.  He bursts into song again.  So the wolf eats the fox.  It was the only thing to do!

It’s nice and peaceful, until the wolf starts to break into song.  And skipping!

Peep-peep! Peep-peep! Pirrippi

right into … a Bear!

He was eating raspberries, when all of a sudden...

Bear was eating raspberries and unhappy when wolf carelessly bumped into him.  All Wolf can say is “Peep!”  After much discussion, Bear eats Wolf and breaks into song!

The sky is so blue / the sun is so yellow!
The trees are so green / and I’m a hap-py fellow!
Peep – Peep!  Pirrippi! Peep-peep!  Peep-peep!

Thankfully, something happens and bear coughs up Wolf , Wolf coughs up Fox, and Fox coughs up Chick. And everyone stopped singing …well, most of them.
