Rooster wore skinny jeans is an unusually modern story of a rooster and online shopping. While the farm’s initial reaction to rooster’s skinny jeans is not what he hoped, rooster still finds his way to happiness.
I find this picture book entertaining every time I read it. The imagery of a chicken in clothes is funny and unexpected. Rooster models healthy coping mechanisms in the face of adversity and I think it would be useful for any young child who has been teased, especially around clothing choices. It’s a relatively quick read. The illustrations are bright and expressive and well matched to the story.
This is a book for young children, I’d say up to the age of five.
I give it 4 stars. It’s a light-hearted and enjoyable bedtime read.
