A little chick hatches out of its egg. Who does it belong to?
Now in board book format, this surprising story by Caldecott Honor–winning artist Nancy Tafuri is full of humor, love, and family, and is perfect for seasonal promotions and for emerging readers all year long.
School Library Journal said, “[Children] are likely to sing along with the chirps, honks, clucks, and quacks while they jump into this vividly drawn world.”
Who does this little chick belong to? No one seems to know—not Goose (Honk!), not Duck (Quack!), not Hen (Cluck!), not Bird (Chirp!). Not even Little Chick (croo? croo?).
But Little Chick’s parents know, and—as sharp observers will delight in noting—they’ve been swimming nearby all along.
The companion to Nancy Tafuri’s Caldecott Honor Book Have You Seen My Duckling?, this delightful story about family, community, and love will engage and surprise the youngest reader.
Booklist said, “The softly brushed pen-and-watercolor illustrations appear simplistic but, in fact, offer a charming visual narrative, as cozy as a parent’s lap, that will assuage a toddler’s fear of abandonment.”
