Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
The adorable, terrycloth chickens created by Stiegemeyer and Baicker-McKee in Cheep! Cheep! are back in this cute book about Christmas. Using simple examples of how the chickie family prepares and celebrates the season, the text is part repetition and part rhyme. As we see them decorate the Christmas tree, we read: "shiny, shiny, bright…Place a golden star on top…twinkle, twinkle, night." All of the brightly-colored items populating the pictures are handmade from a variety of fabrics, papers and clay. The exuberance of the chicks' faces and their body postures will make this book appeal to a variety of ages. Reading the text aloud will provide many moments of shared fun for readers and lap listeners alike. Early readers will be able to develop confidence in their newfound abilities while sharing the pleasure of the chick family. This cheerful board book includes a recipe for "Christmas Cheeps Christmas Treats." Reviewer: Sheilah Egan
School Library Journal

PreS-This colorful picture book features a family of cuddly terrycloth chicks with clay feet and features, adorned in knit caps and scarves. They play in the snow, sing, make cookies, decorate the tree, read, and hang up their stockings. Their excitement on Christmas morning is palpable. Though adults may wonder why the parents are chicks and not chickens, children will be charmed by the brightly bordered textural pictures and the lively, expressive family. The text is simple, rhythmic, and fun. A cheery read-aloud for the toddler set.-Linda Israelson, Los Angeles Public Library
