KIRKUS REVIEW

The creator of Where’s My Mommy? (2002) again addresses a topic of immediate interest to the diapered but mobile set: When Little Chick’s nesting Mom sends him out to play, he learns an exhilarating array of running, jumping, hopping and rolling games from the farmyard’s other livestock—then hurries back home just in time to teach them to a flock of newly hatched siblings. Adding a deftly effective cautionary strand involving Little Chick’s tendency to barrel (harmlessly) into his new friends because he’s not looking where he’s going, Brown creates even more energy and motion for her very simple, broadly brushed scenes with dotted track lines and large-lettered sound effects. This romp-and-a-half will definitely not keep its audiences sitting still. (Picture book. 2-4)
