The Sky is Falling Hardcover Picture Book

The Sky is Falling

When an acorn hits Chicken Little on the head, she panics and screeches, "The sky is falling! The sky is falling!"

Pretty soon the other animals joined them. You can't blame someone for wanting to dance, even if the sky isn't really falling! Hardcover, Picture Book. Ages 5-6.
