Product Details


Preschoolers will appreciate the playful abandon with which this likable little chick throws himself into his explorations, as well as the reassurance of his safe return to his home . . . It’s an altogether satisfying outing.
—New York Times Book Review, The

Remarkable vinyl engravings, watercolor washes, and printed wood textures colorfully frame this charming interactive tale.
—Nick Jr. Magazine

Not since Rosie the Hen’s circumambulation in Pat Hutchins’s ROSIE’S WALK has a trip around the barnyard been so a’moo’sing, so ‘ribbit’ing, and so exu’baa’rant.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Lawrence’s closely detailed, dynamic vinyl engravings lift this book well above the typical barnyard sound survey…sound may be the little chick’s forte, but the real pleasure of this book lies in the author/artist’s visual imagination.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Young fans of ‘Old MacDonald’ and similar singalongs will ‘Moo,’ ‘Ribbit,’ and ‘Oink’ right along with this adventurous chick, who wanders away from Mother Hen to find playmates of different species.
—Kirkus Reviews

An adventuous chick travels the barnyard and becomes multilingual in this noisy, attractive offering…great for read-alouds.

The animal characters, from doe-eyed cows to cavorting piglets, are each distinguished in their expressiveness, but the effervescent little chick, whose orange feet and yellow wings splay wildly with his excitement, steals the show.
—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, The

This bold little bird befriends other farm animals with some rib-tickling results. Young children will love the silly, surprising responses. Even more unexpected is the stunning illustration work.
—Child Magazine’s Best Children’s Book Award

Perfect for reading aloud, this book will have little ones delightedly mooing, baaing and quacking.
—Washington Parent
