First Friday...Features......Little Chicken and Katie Davis!

Today marks the first of my First Friday Features.   On the first Friday of each month I hope to interview a different picture book character.  Little Chicken of Little Chicken's Big Day
is my first guest and I am so excited!
Thanks for coming today Little Chicken. 

S:  Little Chicken, now that you are the star of your very own book, do you find that people treat you differently?
LC:  Nah, they still just pay me chicken feed.

S:  I feel your pain.  Your "I hear you cluckin' Big Chicken" has become a catch phrase for chickens everywhere.  What do you say to that?
LC:  I hear you cluckin' big chicken.

S:  What adventures do you see in your future Little Chicken?
LC:  I'd like to attend preschool and make some new friends.  Learning to fly is also on my bucket list.

S:  Both are certainly adventures worth working towards.  Your creators Katie Davis and Jerry Davis...any interesting projects you can share with your fans?
LC:  They're pecking away at something, but if I told you, I'd have to make you cross the road.

S:  Please, not that!  Lastly, do you prefer your corn cracked or whole?
LC:  Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care.  Frankly, I prefer rutabagas!

Thanks Little Chicken.  We are watching you.  We know there are lots of big things in your future!

Also a special thank you to Katie Davis, who along with her husband Jerry, is the creator of Little Chicken's Big Day   Katie publishes a fabulous blog featuring all sorts of helpful info about KidLit.  She also has a newsletter and appears monthly on ABC's Good Morning Connecticut recommending great books for kids and produces Brain Burps About Kids her famous podcasts. 
I will add a personal note here and say that her e-book How to Promote Your Children's Book
is an in-depth look at promoting your book that includes links,  tips, and really just everything you need to know about marketing, blogs, websites, book trailers, marketing materials etc.  I cannot say enough good about it.
Thank you so much Katie for allowing Little Chicken to visit my little First Friday Feature.

  3. Sharon, let me say that I think it is an adorable idea to feature storybook characters. I may want to share some of your interviews with my early learners. I think it would be great for them to read the thoughts of some of their favorite characters. I cracked up when I read this! I can't wait for your next installment. Katie Davis is a RIOT! I love her, big time!
