Little Chick, by Amy Hest. Ages 2-6
Little Chick loves exploring the wide world around her! Along the way, her gentle Old-Auntie is always ready to explain away any confusions. When Little Chick becomes frustrated (Her carrot won’t grow! Her kite won’t fly! She can’t pluck her favorite star from the sky!), Old-Auntie suggests that maybe some things are perfect just the way they are.
Amy Hest’s sweet, simple narrative is paired flawlessly with soft watercolors and sketches from illustrator Anita Jeram. Parents and little ones alike will be instantly drawn to this tale of discovering the simple joys of life with those we love. Don’t miss this lovely nursery tale that comes just in time for spring!
