Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
A first-time playground outing looms large for two chicks. Everything is so big and busy, including the seesawing dogs and swinging cats. At first, the little birds hold back timidly but finally work up their courage to zoom down the slide when helped by a kindly beaver. Author/illustrator Valeri Gorbachev portrays the fuzzy protagonists as gender neutral in shorts and t-shirts and, in this way, shows that having fears and being brave are not sex-typed behaviors. Especially delightful are Gorbachev's playground scenes, which capture the chaos and camaraderie of little ones throwing balls, jumping rope and shoveling sandbox sand while parents and nannies watch from nearby benches.

    When a parent brought this book to my child care home this morni

    When a parent brought this book to my child care home this morning, I thought it would be a lighthearted read. Ha! It was difficult for me to read some of the pages because I was laughing so hard. The illustrations, from the very beginning, show incredible detail and inform the reader that lots is happening. I explained to the toddlers and preschoolers who were my audience, that there was so much going on, no wonder the little chickens looked a bit scared.

    As the plot unfolds, the real message comes through loud and clear - each twosome or group who were having lots of fun, invited the chickens to join them, but the chickens declined. However, when they got to the slide, the little chickens couldn't resist. Even though they're ready to interact with the others, they get to the top of the slide's ladder then freeze, telling those who cheered them on they just couldn't go down. A friendly beaver lets them use his tail and all the others clap and show real happiness as the little chickens go down the slide. This kind of caring for one another is what I try to teach the little ones in my care each and every day. Having a book that gives the same message is just wonderful. It's definitely going to be one I share with other child care providers.

    Now if we could just get real children to treat others this way, we'd be in a new and wonderful world!
