Five little chicks hatch, and boy are they born hungry! Exploring the environment, each chick finds a potential meal, each with a little rhyme. But those worms and bugs and strawberries and trout are probably too unwieldy for their newborn beaks, so their wise mama leads them to the corn patch for a scratch fest. An excellent choice for counting, identifying colors, and doing animals sounds and actions. Tafuri's trademark colored pencils make for brightly textured and engaging illustrations that stretch across full-page spreads.

Summary:
A mother hen has five newly hatched chicks. The chicks explore the farm looking for food to eat until Mama Hen calls them into the patch and teaches them how to scratch and peck food. After a day of learning new things, Mama Hen tells her chicks it’s time for sleep and wishes them a good night.

Personal Reaction:
I thought this book was very boring, I can't imagine it being of any interest to a young child but this could be a good book to use when teaching how to count numbers. The illustrations in this book were nice. When reading aloud, I was not able to find a rhythm to the words and a lot of the rhyming seemed to be forced.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. I would read this book to toddlers that are starting to learn how to count.
2. This book would be great to introduce students to onomatopoeias.

rhyme and repetition make this book predictable and a good choice for a new reader.
