Thanks for the book. We all have been enjoying it and it has earned a spot in the littlies book box in their bedroom. I also am thinking of using it in my Creative Movements dance class. I think my dancers would enjoy running around tippy toe like chick.
Mama Hen and her three little chicks are heading to the garden for breakfast just as they do every day, when they find a nasty surprise: a big scary dog lies between them and the garden! Mama Hen is ready to give up and wait for chicken feed (blech!) but her chicks aren't so fast to retreat, especially Little Chick. What chance does Little Chick have against a big dog though? Plenty when she puts her mind to it!

very cute story for children under 6... and even older! the illustrations match perfectly with the story and the age level :)
Cute with a nice message
A hen and her three chicks, Big, Middle and Little, are taking their daily walk to the garden for a treat. On this day, along the way, they encounter a dog which has no intention of letting them pass. Big and Middle Chick each take a turn trying to scare the dog away. Each is unsuccessful. Then Little Chick tries. Little Chick is fast and is able to make the dog tie himself around a tree, thus enabling the family to get around the dog and into the garden for their treat.

Not a great book, but cut

Hen would always take her chicks to the garden to eat. Today there was a dog that would not let them by so they would just have to wait for the chick feed. They were all disappointed. The two older ones tried but nothing worked. The littlest chick asked to try and ran toward the dog that chased her around the tree. She called time to eat and they happily followed. This is a great book to build self-esteem because no matter of your size you can still always accomplish things.

Oh my gosh, what a fun and enjoyable book! Rabbit loves this book and says "tippy toe" at all of the appropriate times! Fun!
What a cute story promoting curiosity, cleverness and quick thinking. My boys enjoyed the repetitions and the sounds.
Little Chick isn't afraid of a mean, grumpy dog!
