Busy-Busy Little Chick
Ideal for Easter and springtime, an exuberantly illustrated picture book by a New York Times bestselling artist!
Little Chick’s mother is all cluck and no action. Mama knows her old nest isn’t the cozy home she and her brood need. But whenever she vows to start building a new house, she’s distracted—by sweety-meaty worms, crunchy-munchy crickets, or picky-pecky corn. Luckily, her Little Chick is an industrious sort. While the rest of his family are stuffing themselves silly, he’s quietly working, bit by bit, day by day.
Janice N. Harrington’s retelling of a little-known Central African story is perfectly matched with Brian Pinkney’s jazzy depiction of a can-do little critter.
