Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This book for young counters is charming. Our heroine buys a baby chick in an old-fashioned general store on a shopping trip with her family. Her sister chooses two black chicks; their father likes the striped ones, so he chooses three. Mom had four in her apron by the time the child "turned around to see." This is a wonderful rhyming counting book with very few words which are on the left side of the pages and illustrations which outgrow their space on the right side, until the chicks nearly overtake the double-page spread, as they have overtaken the house! There are lots of opportunity for counting here, but there are other chances for vocabulary development as well. A kindergarten class would enjoy this, chuckling at the chaos the chickens create. 2000, Caroline House, Ages 3 to 7, $14.95. Reviewer: Candace Deisley
School Library Journal
PreS-K-This attempt at a bouncy counting rhyme falls flat. The verses clump along in a singsong rhythm as a girl buys a baby chick at the general store and each member of her extended family successively chooses one more until great-grandpa picks out 10 chicks for a grand total of "more than fifty head." No numerals are shown, weakening the title's use as a counting book. The colorful pictures are lively and busy with detail as the new family additions populate the house. The cartoon characters, drawn with big heads and thin necks, energetically gather up the chicks, adding to the slapstick antics. Children will find the idea of chickens overrunning the house humorous, and a two-page spread of the kitchen aptly illustrates the silly situation. Despite the funny punch line, "I guess my family's lucky I didn't want a cow," there are many better rhyming stories and counting books available, making this an additional purchase.-Karen James, Louisville Free Public Library, KY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    'Count' on silly FUN!

    My name is Kelly Milner Halls and I wrote I BOUGHT A BABY CHICKEN. While it's been called a great counting book, it was written to be deliciously fun (as you'll discover when you read the closing line). BABY CHICKEN was inspired by my family's ever expanding flock of chickens. I bought one chick for each of my daughters and housed them in a rural Colorado coop. My sister bought one for each of her kids, my mother bought a few, my grandmother a few more. But summer's end, we had more than a dozen peeps. And I wouldn't have missed that adventure for the world. I hope you'll buy BABY CHICKEN, curl up with your favorite little reader and laugh. Those giggles are the true measure of BABY CHICKEN's success.

    A delightful children's book!

    It all began with one little baby chicken. Kelly Milner Halls¿ new book, ¿I Bought A Baby Chicken,¿ begin with a little girl falling in love with a cute, fuzzy little baby chicken. Soon her entire family gets into the act, with mom, dad, sister and cousins outdoing each other to see who can get the most baby chickens. Even Great-Grandma and Great Grandpa are gathering up chickens to take home. And when the excitement was over, the family has fifty baby chicks of every color and size. Now what are they to do? ¿I Bought A Baby Chicken is a bright and colorful counting book that will be sure to delight children and parents alike. Incorporating counting skills as well as math skills, its fun to see all the different kinds of chicks the silly family gathers up. The charming illustrations by Karen Stormer Brooks make ¿I Bought A Baby Chicken¿ a vivid adventure for the eyes. Kelly Milner Halls is a fulltime freelance writer, who lives in Spokane, Washington. She is the author of ¿Dino-Trekkers: With her first children¿s picture book, Halls was inspired by a true-life event involving her oldest daughter's case of the chickenpox. The girl was so badly stricken with the itchy blisters, she had to miss her 2nd grade class picture. So Halls bought her a baby chicken to cheer her up. By the end of summer, her whole family had 'flocked' to add to the nest. Like the family in the book, the Halls family wound up with more than a dozen 'peeps' in their happy family. So what began with one little baby chicken has resulted in an enchanting story for everyone to enjoy.
