The picture book series – The Chicken Thief
They are books without words, which has allowed our telling of the tale to evolve and become elaborate – or if we're really tired, to be simplified. It also allows for story telling to be more than 'reading' marks on paper, but an aural tradition. A way to respect imagination over ability to read or write correctly. Things that feel less valued by our education system these days, but to me feel so important for the growth of memory and creativity.
Linking to Jess and her a book a week series.
(ps Jess, I meant to link every week, but life just keeps taking over at the moment. And I totally see the humour that I've posted books on chickens being stolen by foxes and chickens going fishing, while you have posted a book on veganism).
