The ridiculous trend of making board books out of classic picture books annoys me. Do you really need a board book of The Snowy Day for your baby? And while I know that this format would keep your 2 year old from ripping it, the board book format is still a baby book format. And in the library that means it gets shelved separately from the hardcovers.

So here's an adorable series--and I'd love to read this one especially at story time for the 2 and up set, and even more so for my 3 and up group.
This was a cute book! IT is funny at the end. I think it would be fun to read this book to my baby cousin. It is nice and cute. I was reading it in the car to my mom and she likes the book to. THANK YOU

LOVE this book for my daughter. I read it to her all the time. It's one of the very few books she lets me read all the words before flipping the page. She's 17 months old. It's a very cute book.

These are cute, repetitive little padded board books full of silliness. At first glance I was concerned but after actually reading them I'm relieved and entertained (as are my girls!) If you get all three (recommended!) start with Pottytime for Chickies.

This pair of board books introduces three small chicks who have problems falling asleep and using the potty correctly. Trasler uses humor and other animals to make these books great fun to read. Her artwork is particularly child-friendly and the Chickies themselves are naughty and silly, in the just the way small children would appreciate.

The chickies are never satiated. The chickies have need after need.

This book teaches children how demanding they can be, when all their parents want to do is go to sleep already. But in an adorable manner.

Nice rhyming. Realistic depiction (no seeds-to-dinner-that-night nonsense like some of these books).

My two year old has this memorized. He loves it and all the chickie books. We call him to dinner and bed and anywhere else by saying, "Bedtime for Chickies!"

This is one of my 19-month-old's absolute favorites right now. Everyone in the house has it memorized, lol.

This was just right for my 1.5 year old. She insisted on reading it over and over. I'm not wild about the illustrations, but I gotta say the cadence and rhyme of the text is catchy.

Rhyme time! This book is so apropos po for bedtime because you know your little nugget is not falling asleep anytime soon. Three month old Fé loves when Mommy or Daddy reads this book to her.

Sheep, Pig and Cow are ready to go to sleep, but the Chickies just aren't quite there yet.

This is a pretty funny and very relateable little story about bedtime. Anyone who has ever tried to put a toddler to bed will understand exactly the expressions on the faces of Sheep, Pig and Cow as they try to get those Chickies ready for bed. Short, sweet, funny and the illustrations are okay (apparently it's part of a series and based on puppets, so knowing that it makes a little more sense to me).
