Editorial Reviews

The New York Times - Sarah Harrison Smith
What could be more fun than an unsentimental rhyming board book? These musical, percussive sentences will work their way into your little one's head, and the next thing you know she or he will be reciting them as you read.

It's dinnertime for those sassy Chickies (Bedtime for Chickies, 2014; Pottytime for Chickies, 2014).Sheep, Donkey and Pig try to get the three little Chickies to eat a nutritious dinner, but the feisty yellow fellows have their own ideas. For instance, when presented with a noodle dish by Sheep, they respond: "We can't eat this. It's too drippy. / We want something chocolate chippy." When Sheep convinces them to give it a try—"Just one pint-sized, pewee peck? / You might like it. You should check"—they change their tune and slurp it up. The same sequence occurs when Donkey feeds them Mexican food and Pig offers them veggies. Finally, it's time for treats, and after protesting that they have no more room for goodies, the Chickies again acquiesce: "Well, maybe just one tiny taste. / We'd hate for it to go to waste!" The Chickies are bright yellow circles with simple yet incredibly expressive features, while their big-eyed animal caretakers are endearingly cartoonlike. Wobbly black outlines lend an air of instability and happy chaos to the effort.A lesson on being open to new foods that little ones will eat right up. (Board book. 1-3)
