I Got a Chicken for My Birthday

By Laura Gehl
Illustrated by Sarah Horne

What a birthday girl wants more than anything from her Abuela are tickets to the amusement park. Instead she gets a chicken.

But this chicken is no ordinary chicken; it has plans! With a lot of hard work, and help from lots of other animals, this chicken may just end up building the girl the best birthday gift ever!

  • Features Hispanic characters in everyday settings
  • Hilarious and unexpected plot
  • Deals with how disappointment sometimes turns into something better
