Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 1—This rambunctious story has an onomatopoeic rhyming text that children will love to hear again and again. Chicky chicks, buzzy bees, and kitty cats romp in the sunny warm shine and snuggle in the sleepy shine until, "Pitter, patter. Pit. Pit. Patter. Splitter, splatter." Down comes the rain, which makes them "soggy, groggy moggy." "Sunny, sunny breeze and shine. Fluff and fur and fuzz." Inspired by the art and culture of her native Zimbabwe,MacLennan dabs, swirls, and sponges bright splashes of paint on brown butcher paper. Lively spreads and the creative placement of text express energy and movement to make this a unique, eye-catching experience. This creative book is as much fun to read aloud as it is to look at.—Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

My daughter has had this book since she was about 1 year old.

This book is so wonderful, with its colorful illustrations and rhyming song-like story.

It is the first book he has brought to me and "asked" me to read.

I bought this book for my nephew who is 18 months old. He absolutely LOVES it. The manner the author/illustrator uses is VERY good. Upon the first reading, my nephew thought the chicks were actually fuzzy. The sounds that make up the text are mesmerizing. The story features bees, chicks, and cats. Children who are learning animals will be captivated. Many times when playing, we'll hear him, "Chicky, chicky, chook chook," or "Snuggle, snuggle, sleepy shine."

I was also taken with the methods of illustration. The author was born in Zimbabwe and now lives in the UK. Influences of Africa are apparent in the vivid and sweet illustrations.

This book is very enjoyable for toddlers and adults alike!

Normally I am very tired of hearing authors make up new words and using little sound bites, but not with Chicky Chicky Chook Chook. We read this with a classroom of three-year-olds and they were giggling away. My son loved it at least 7 times! I had to keep reading it just to hear him attempting the new sounds he heard. The talent of Cathy MacLennan goes even further with illustrations briming with imagination and texture!

I have loved this book from the first time I read it from the library. I love having the children repeat after me. It really works on their pronunciation! :)

Not only is this book cute and fun to read, but it also has a lot of verb and consonants to improve verbal skills. Great book!

I initially borrowed this book from the library when my daughter was an infant. She's almost two now, and still enjoys the book. It's a silly, fun read. The pictures illustrate motion and inspire imagination as to what the characters are doing throughout their day. No, it's not a complex story, and it's not long. It's a very short book, and more along the lines of a song or illustrated nursery rhyme, than a story book. I haven't looked at the author's other books, and don't really intend to. I wouldn't want a whole shelf full of books such as this, but one is just fine. That said, I really enjoy "Chicky Chicky Chook Chook," and so does my daughter. And I think that's about all that counts.

The 2 year-old still enjoys the rhythms and the crashes. Very fun for the younger set. It also comes as a board book. I chose this hardcover version because the illustrations are much larger.

My daughter first read this book last year when she was 5. She checked it out of the school library 8 times and I knew I just had to find this book for her! I love the fact that it is a small book, she can put it in her mini backpack and take it with her. It is for her 7th bday, so she is going to be happily surprised!

My daughter has had this book since she was about 1 year old. This is by far her favorite. She loves it, especially when I change the volume of my voice to match the story. She has it memorized now that she is 3. This is a definite must have for any baby/toddler library.
