Book Talk Tuesday!

Linking up with Mrs. Jump's Class!


Armadilly Chili is a great book! It's a Southwestern version of The Little Red Hen. And the illustrations are beautiful! My students even chose this as their favorite book in 2nd grade.

Armadilly ChiliIn the story, Miss Billie is making her famous chili. She asks her friend Tarantula Tex to help her out, but he's going dancing. Then she asks Mackie the blue bird if he can help, but he's going to see a movie. Finally, she asks Taffy the horned toad, but she's busy roller skating. Feeling the Little Red Hen vibe? So she decides to make it all by herself. As the chili is simmering, Tex stops by after dancing and asks for some. Miss Billie tells him to get lost. Then Mackie stops by and asks for some chili, but Miss Billie denies his request. Taffy also stops by for some chili, but none for her.

As Miss Billie sits down to enjoy her chili, she realizes something is missing . . .


  1. Thanks for the great book recommendation! This looks like it would be great for my folktale unit or to compare/contrast with The Little Red Hen. I had not heard of it before reading your post. :)

  2. I wonder what was missing? This is a great book preview. Students would love to finish this book to find out what was missing.
