Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
"Busy, busy chickens. What are they doing?" They're walking and squawking, peeking and sneaking, flapping and napping-among other participle pairs, eight in all. Holt's engaging photographs illustrate chickens in each mode, from " ‘aww'-inspiring fuzzy chicks to wildly top-knotted grown-ups. As fowl go, this is a remarkably expressive group, aided and abetted by clever compositions and wily use of exposure times-that zooming chicken really looks like she's pouring it on. Visually busy, these photographs are for older babies. The crisp rhymes introduce a deceptively rich vocabulary that is subtly assisted by appropriately playful typography in a clearly legible sans-serif typeface printed in contrasting colors. A barnyard winner. (1-2)
From the Publisher
Review, Genesee Valley Parent, May 1, 2010:
"Featuring photographs of chickens in action, your toddler will be eager to strut his stuff with these funky birds."
