“Higgledy-Piggledy Chicks” is the story of a Mama hen that has seven brand new chicks. They are very curious little things and have many near misses with trouble.

Cayden: “The hen laid seven eggs. I liked when they started to crack open and hatch. Some of the chicks were different colors. There were yellow ones, and brown ones, and black ones. They could have gotten in lots of trouble if their mom didn’t keep protecting them. They saw a cat and a snake and some other things. I liked the part at the end that showed pictures of real baby chicks and liked that it told about how they grow inside their eggs.”

Parent’s comments:

“Higgledy-Piggledy Chicks” is a fun springtime book! We loved seeing what kind of trouble the chicks were going to get into next. The chicks often reminded me of my own children in that respect! The “How Little Chicks Grow” and “A Hobby Farmer with Art Supplies” sections at the end of the book were very interesting and supplemented the story nicely.
