It's hard to rate this since when I read it (8+ times a day) I'm really only labelling animals & mimicking their sounds. 16 month old is not interested in the words on the pages -- but the pictures are lovely.

This story is about a mama who has seven new chicks. The chicks want to explore the barnyard because it is new to them. Mama tells the chicks, “Watch out for danger!” They are so curious that they get into trouble. They know they can always go back to a safe place, which is under mama’s wing. This story is good for students who want to explore and know that they have a safe place to go to. Good for preschoolers.

Delightful! This is a great book for introducing your children or students to the life cycle of chickens while teaching basic counting concepts. The illustrations will have you in awe, too.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
Cute book that describes how baby chicks hatch and how the mother hen takes care of them. It has fun, colorful illustrations and a simple, but interesting narrative. It's a fun book to read aloud.

Simple and straightforward but it misses some natural things like the hen sitting on her eggs.
