"This little chick / went to the garden. / This little chick / found a worm. / This little chick / eyed a berry. / And this little chick / gave a squirm!" The creator of the Caldecott Honor Book Have You Seen My Ducklings? here gives us a mama hen and her five newly hatched and curious chicks, in a simple farmyard story for prereaders.
"Done in brush pen, watercolor pencils, and ink, [Nancy] Tafuri's endearing illustrations sweep across the pages, presenting an intensely close-up view of the chicks and the action.... Listeners will delight in the art featuring almost life-size fowl."—School Library Journal
