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.

Shannon, George, and Laura Dronzek. Tippy-toe Chick, Go! New York: Greenwillow, 2003. Print. Ages 8+ Tippy-Toe Chick, Go is a really fun book to read. This story has five main characters.

The first two smaller chickens didn't make it through, but the smallest one made it through because he was so fast and ...more

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!

While the text doesn't rhyme or have strict rhythm throughout, there is an internally

This story is about a Hen and her two little chicks. Every day after the dew is gone they go to the garden and get their favorite food. Those were sweet itty-bitty beans and potato bugs. One day after they finished their chores they went to get their favorite treat but something was in their way. A dog would not let them through. The littlest chick had a good idea to run as fast as she could so the dog would chase her. She ran around the tree until the dog got tangled. Then they were able to get ...more

This was a cute book and I liked it until the end. I felt bad for the dog wrapped around the tree with his leash. I liked the pictures but because I felt bad for the dog...I couldn't rate it higher.
I love the ruff-ruff-ruff and the tippy-toe , tippy-toe

This children story is about how the little chick shows how brave she is when trouble comes around.

This book is amazing on showing how courage and quick thinking can help to get out of sticking situations.

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.

What a cute story promoting curiosity, cleverness and quick thinking. My boys enjoyed the repetitions and the sounds.
