How well do you really know your book characters, like Flat Stanley or Amelia Bedelia? One way to find out is to take some book quizzes given on the HarperCollins Children's Book Site. Lots of great books have quizzes you can take to test your knowledge, or there are also fun games to play. Look for secrets in the Secret Life of Ms. Finkleman object game or help Bernie feed the beast in The Rotten School Game. The more you read, the better you will do!
We have many other chicken adventures to choose from, maybe even a Chicken Little!
