Emma at the Fair by Margriet Ruurs
Book Description"A 2006-2007 Chocolate Lily Book Award Nominee in the Picture Book category"Fall is in the air as Emma, the plucky hen, scratches happily around the farmyard. This is no ordinary day; the family is going to the fair and Emma is invited. Even sharing the ride with a grinning jack-o-lantern won't ruin her fun. But Emma soon realizes that she is supposed to win a ribbon. How is that to be done? She can't crow like the rooster that has a ribbon. She doesn't strut like the turkey that has a ribbon. She "certainly" can't act like the messy pigeon that has a ribbon.Emmas is exasperated. Just "what" is she supposed to do? Emma does the only thing she can do. She ruffles up her feathers, sits herself down like a tea cosy, and takes a nap. You never know; maybe Emma can win a ribbon just by being herself.
