Kid’s Book Review: Little Chick

About the Book and Author / Illustrator

Join Little Chick and peep through the cut-outs on each spread to spy a whole host of farmyard animals.

And there is a very special someone waiting at the end of the book!

Book Review

I especially like the ending when you find mummy chicken

Dylan: I love the pictures in this book and finding all the animals. I especially like the ending when you find mummy chicken.

Mum and dad: The illustrations in this book are lovely, and the board book pages with cut-outs make it easy for Dylan to handle and turn the pages. The ending delights him every time, as he loves shouting out “mummy chicken!”

It also makes him laugh when there’s the “great big cow and tiny mouse”.
