Sonal opens her story in the morning as she greets her happy mother hen but soon discovers that her father rooster has a cough and sore throat. She follows her mother’s advice and borrows ginger for her father’s tea: should the rooster remain ill he will not be able to sound out the Kuk Kudu Ku that awakens the farmers. Chickalina asks the cat for ginger but the cat advises her to ask the dog as she is out of ginger. But alas the dog has no ginger, offering instead garlic grass and advising Chickalina to visit the sheep. Again the sheep has just eaten her ginger and sends Chickalina with milk thistle to the goat, but no ginger there either, offering instead some butterfly weed. The goat refers her to the cow and bull who are friendly but have no ginger and instead offer chamomile and recommend seeking ginger from the horse who again has no ginger but offers thyme. Frustrated and carrying all her herbs Chickalina meets the donkey who offers a substitute of rosemary. She visits a pig who has no ginger but eats all the basket of various herbs Chickalina has gathered from the friendly farm animals. Chickalina seeks solace from the ducks and at last she finds ginger! Chickalina is rewarded for her efforts with a fine breakfast and the hen gives the rooster the ginger solving the problem. Roster is able to hail the morning with a loud KUK KUDU KU.
Charming writing, excellent illustrations, and a solid lesson about sharing and friendship. This is a very fine little book for a talented writer/illustrator/teacher! Grady Harp, September 16
I received this book at no charge in exchange for my honest review
It's a lot of responsibility for a young hungry chick like Chickalina but she's very determined. So, she goes to the farm animals in search for some ginger. The animals don't have ginger but they have other herbs so she gathers catnip and thyme and lots of other herbs. Her trip is long and her little tummy is rumbling when she meets the pig, who acts like a pig. Chikalina is in distress. She is hungry and tired when the cavalry arrives at her rescue. Well, a metaphorical cavalry of course. (hint: they are yellow and have fin-like legs)
The illustrations are bright, colorful and simply delightful.
The book is a little bit long. Chickalina meets a lot of farm animals on her quest, and I think that might be too much for a young kid.
The herbs illustrations are a nice addition. They appear throughout the story and then at the end there is a page with all of them. Kids would love to browse through the pages and discover these little details.
This story is about Chickalina trying to get some ginger for her ill father's tea. The rooster has woken up with a cough and sore throat. Chickalina approaches various farm animals, all of whom are kind and generous, but none can provide the ginger. Instead she is given a variety of herbs which are devoured by the pig. This is too much for the tired and hungry chick. Chickalina bursts into tears and then is aided by the duck who gives her ginger. She gives it to Mother Hen and finally has breakfast. The ginger helps Papa who crows loudly and wakes the human. Cleverly, Panse substitutes flowers in the speech bubble for curses when the farmer is woken.
The book ends with labelled illustrations of the herbs and a challenge for the reader to find them in the previous pages.
The story is delightful although I think the text could have been trimmed. Some pages are unnecessarily wordy and slow down the pace. Children will engage in following Chickalina's quest, wondering what she will be given next and if anyone will be able to provide the ginger. Humour in the illustrations and story line are sprinkled throughout keeping the picture book suspenseful but light-hearted.
The book opens the way for a discussion about natural remedies. Readers may want to research the medicinal uses of the other herbs. Parents will be curious about such plants as butterfly weed as well.
An enjoyable book for young children and their families.
A free ebook copy was given to me for a non-reciprocal review.
This is a wonderful story. The art in the book captures the character of each animal. I found the artwork to be beautiful. The story is just right for its age group for early readers or for picture book children. The words are simple and the pictures are beautiful. I give this book a five out of a possible five stars. It is excellent.
