This Little Chick

( 1 )

Overview

Who says a little chick can’t make big, loud animal noises?

Most little chicks barely make a peep, but not this little chick! While his brothers and sisters nestle close to their mother hen, this little chick struts off on his own to make some new friends in the farmyard. And he has a wonderful time of it - sliding off the back of a shiny pink pig, hopping along with frogs, skipping with a flock of frisky sheep, and imitating all the sounds these animals make. Full of playful ...

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Now in board book for the first time, This Little Chick by John Lawrence chronicles the diminutive hero as he discovers the other animals on his farm and mimics their sounds. In a starred review, PW wrote, "Closely detailed, dynamic vinyl engravings lift this book well above the typical barnyard sound survey." Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
Rhymes with animal sounds are always a hit at preschool circle times. Young children will eagerly chime in as "this little chick from over the way" learns to "oink" like a pig, "quack like a duck," and "moo like a cow." Lawrence's illustrations show an adventurous chick leaping over the curled tails of pink pigs and holding hands in mid-air with green frogs. On several pages, a gray mouse watches and joins in on the fun. A parade of animals, some carrying flowers, accompany little chick as he goes back to his mom at the end of the day. When little chick repeats the animal noises to his mother, the other chicks in the nest cover their ears with their wings. The uses of vinyl engravings with watercolor washes provide a lovely complement to the traditional text. Characters are drawn large and simply, just right for toddler tastes. This would make a nice baby gift. 2002, Candlewick,
— Jackie Hechtkopf
School Library Journal
PreS-When little chick goes visiting, he chats with his animal friends by using their very own noises. He "oinks" to the piglets, "moos" to the calf, "quacks" to the ducklings, etc. as their bemused mothers look on. At the end of his busy day, the gregarious orange-legged chick returns to his nest with much to relate to his family in "cheeps" liberally interspersed with moos, quacks, and ribbits. Then, hen and chicks slumber (in blissful quiet) on the very last page. This traditional repetitive rhyme is wonderfully enhanced by the bold and vigorous vinyl engravings of wide-eyed and jaunty barnyard animals. A layout that encourages listeners to supply the appropriate sounds by asking, "And what do you think they heard him say?" insures enthusiastic audience participation. Lap-sitters and toddlers can try to spot the incidental mouse, crow, and butterfly; can identify each of the critters as they form a sprightly parade across a spread; and can recap little chick's entire day by following his multilingual monologue at the very end. Not since Rosie the Hen's circumambulation in Pat Hutchins's Rosie's Walk (Macmillan, 1968) has a trip around the barnyard been so a"moo"sing, so "ribbit"ing, and so exu"baa"rant.-Carol Ann Wilson, Westfield Memorial Library, NJ Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Young fans of "Old MacDonald" and similar singalongs will "Moo," "Ribbit," and "Oink" right along with this adventurous chick, who wanders away from Mother Hen to find playmates of different species. Adding watercolor washes and printed wood textures to thick lined "vinyl engravings," Lawrence depicts a small chick with long orange legs bounding about exuberantly with his new friends in spacious, sparsely detailed rural settings. The accompanying ditty, made from large, hand-cut letters, enhances the visual informality, and culminates in a spread-filling cacophony, as Chick loudly plays back all the new sounds he's learned before settling down to a well-deserved snooze. The rhyme's not a cumulative one, but there's enough repetition to encourage even reticent young listeners to chime in. (Picture book. 3-5)

Meet the Author

John Lawrence’s signature wood engravings grace the pages of many classic novels and anthologies. But to do the large bold engravings for THIS LITTLE CHICK, he chose to work in vinyl. He says of this book, "I always wanted to do a book for very young children and was delighted when a little chick turned up on my doorstep." John Lawrence’s other books for children include THE MYSTERIES OF ZIGOMAR by Allan Ahlberg and A YEAR AND A DAY by William Mayne.

    Highly recommended - a favorite of our family

    A fun book with a catchy rhyme and rhythm that is fun to read with my grandbabies. The first time this was an accidental purchase, but is one of my favorites that I now special order to give to other babies. My 5 year old granddaughter learned how to read it so she could share it with her new baby brother.
