Lovely rhymning story that goes thru each month of the year. A great kids story that adults will enjoy as well.

A classic picture book of the favored author Maurice Sendak. Lots of good repitition and rhyming including 12 months of the year. It would be great to read this book on the first day of each month, identifying student birthday's and anything else that would go well with chicken soup with rice during that month.

¿Chicken Soup With Rice,¿ is a nice poetry book of the months of the year. A good idea would be to have students make a calendar and draw out the different types of seasons.

Children will love to listen and recite Sendak's book poems, Chicken Soup with Rice. No matter which season or country, he's having chicken soup with rice. Brilliant!

Every month of the year chicken soup with rice can be served, teaches the months.

An enchanting book of poems about the months of the year. Each one ends with "chicken soup with rice." A great little book for all ages.

For some reason I find completely unfathamable, our oldest daughter loved this book when she was four years old. I think it is one of Sendak's weaker efforts, but who am I to argue with its intended audience. At least it helps children learn the months of the year.

This is a month by month book, which is nice for teaching month order and seasons. It also has a cute song that goes with it. My one qualm with this story is that in February he gives the snowman the cake and eats soup- I don't care how much he likes it, no kid would give up cake for soup.

My son loves this book and its simple enough for him to read by himself. He loves to go through the months and never seems to tire of it.

We read this book as a class in second grade, and have been looking for a copy since then and have found it here. I am so excited to order it!!!!!!!!!!

This book with others from the same author was a gift for my 3 years old little one for his birthday from a dear friend who remembers what her kids used to like and read when they were same age. I like its simple wording and sentences and my son has been asking it to re-read for him for many times and is one of his favorites.

My original copy from my childhood was just destroyed in a flood in my basement. This is one of the few books we decided to replace because of my new daughter. When it was destroyed, I was devistated because of how much I wanted to read it to her at bedtime when she got a little older 'she's only four months', and now I am eagerly awaiting my new copy to be delivered! The best book!!!

OMG! i was just looking around on this website, looking for some books for summer reading, and i came across this book (i get easily distracted hehe) and it immediately got me remembering elementary school. in proabably 1st grade, i remember checking out Chicken Soup with Rice, and reading it a hundred times. but then, it being due back to the library, so i would take it back, then the next day, come back to the library and check out the book again, then read it a hundred times.. well, you get the point... i LOVED this book, and i would totaly reccomend it to any child, or adult with still a child in them. also, kindergarden teachers, this is a great book to help kids learn the months of the year. 5 STARS! :)

My teacher used this book in 1st grade to teach us the months of the year. I loved it because we got to sing. I still remember the way the songs go, even though I have forgotten the words.

This was my favorite book when I was little, we still have my tattered, taped copy of the original 1962 publication! Every child should own a copy of 'Chicken Soup With Rice'!

This was one of my favorite stories as a child and now that Im expecting my first child, I am eagerly awaiting the nights when I can read this to my child for a bedtime story. A MUST HAVE!!!

Throught the day, I hear my 5 year old son reciting the different poems from this book 'Chicken Soup With Rice'. Each day in school his teacher would have the class read that mounths poem. Now while he does things around the the house, like getting dressed, eating, playing or coloring or even while we are driving in the car, he will be saying one of these poems They are very cute poems and they make him happy. So when the school year ended for the summer I just had to go out and get the book so that he would always have the poems to remember.

This was my favorite when I was little. I have the 1962 hard back publishing (I'm 22). I had a tape to go with the book at one point, the book was sung. I still remember the song and find myself singin the book as I read it. I love the book so much I recently bought a 1992 copy of the book at a used book sale. Maurice Sendak is fantastic. His stories are timeless.

This morning I spoke with my four-year-old niece, and asked what she was going to have for breakfast. She replied, 'Nothing, but I'm having chicken soup with rice at home.' Later today, my sister explained that Chloe's 'latest thing' was wanting chicken soup with rice since her teacher had read this book to her class. So, here I am on B&N.com to buy a copy for my niece.

This is a great little book to read aloud- it has a nice rhythm as well as good repetition that little ones like, in the lines about 'chicken soup with rice'. The child gets to go through the months of the year and go to wonderful places like Bombay and down the Nile, all the while, eating, well, you know what they get to eat. Some kids will have Maurice Sendak's version of ice skating or how to treat roses in their heads for a long time and they won't even know where it came from. Surprise! It came from this little witty book. :-)
