Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This latest title from the Step into Reading series provides emerging readers with a brief introduction to poultry culture. A family drives to a farm and purchases chicks, which they raise in a brooder. As the chicks grow, they graduate to an outside coop. Eventually some of them lay eggs in nest boxes, providing new chicks for the brooder. Goodell’s realistic artwork depicts cooperative parents and children working together on this venture. The illustrations carefully anticipate the succinct prose (one page depicts Dad giving the farmer a check, while the text reads, “We buy chicks”), making this ideal as a predictable text. Horning does not discuss chick anatomy or physiology, and no mention is made of selling or eating eggs or chickens; she also eschews naming both chicks and humans, almost giving this the feel of nonfiction. Readers wishing to learn more about this topic may appreciate Amy E. Sklansky’s Where Do Chicks Come From? (2005). Preschool-Grade 1. --Weisman, Kay

Review

"This entry, at the Step 1 level in the long-running Step into Reading series, reflects the current demand for engaging informational reading at all levels. It more than meets that need, standing out for its clear description of the process and its subtle multicultural appeal. Whether these fowl are feathered friends or future food, they are nourishing." (Informational early reader. 4-7) - Kirkus Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
A brother and sister receive three tiny chicks. They help their parents make a home for them so they will grow. As they grow, they change. And as they change, their home needs to change. Soon their little chicks will be all grown up and new baby chicks will be on the way.

Chicks! is a Step Into Reading Step 1 book that has easy to read words and larger print to make it easy for the beginning reader to enjoy. The basic vocabulary promotes and encourages the young reader. The bright colorful illustrations make the book entertaining and fun. They also provide picture clues to aid the reader in figuring out where the story is going. Children will love the watching the little chicks grow and parents will enjoy the message of pet responsibility that is woven through out the text and pictures. The very last page in the book has a website that allows the parent to download free sample pages from Sylvan.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.

Format: Paperback
Chicks! does all that a beginning reader should do, and more. With delightfully spare text, Sandra Horning weaves non-fiction information about raising chickens into a very simple tale that comes full circle. A boy and girl bring home chicks, care for them as they "grow...and grow...", and eagerly await the hatching of chicks from the eggs of hens they've raised. Colorful, realistic illustrations provide fine detail and context clues to complement this masterpiece of simplicity that is sure to be a hit with new readers. This one's going in my 5-year-old nephew's Easter basket!
