1 Review
Hens, roosters, and chicks take center stage in the latest addition to the Busy Book series. Through gorgeous color photographs children will recognize chickens--both familiar and spectacularly fancy--busy performing actions like squawking, perching, leaping, and more.Reviews“Those who don't love chickens need not apply. This full color photographic board book is all about barnyard birds in action: "cheeping," and "leaping"; "caring" for their eggs; as well as chickens with elaborate mohawks and an interest in taking naps. For those who wish to move beyond the coop, a series of other "Busy" beasts are available.” —Publishers Weekly
