Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Unlike Chicken Little, this story's title character doesn't worry about the sky falling. All the same, Little Chicken Chicken has an overactive imagination. Other chickens make fun of her for calling a string a tightrope and pretending that some black rocks "fell out of a thundercloud... that's why they're so dark." After her juggling and playful antics distract her coop-mates from a frightening thunderstorm, however, her talents are finally appreciated. Martin, author of the Lizzie series, earnestly encourages readers who dare to be different; still, neither Little Chicken Chicken's uninspired name nor her "thunderstorm circus" conjures real excitement. Heap's (Mouse Party) stylized chickens-watercolored in ochre, rusty brown and gray against aqua-green grass-are seen only in flat profile. Their simply drawn shapes, smiling beaks and large, un-birdlike eyes make them suitable for kitchen decorations-but such conventional illustrations just don't add up to an unconventional character. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-K?The other chickens in the barnyard laugh at Little Chicken Chicken's overactive imagination. She saves a piece of string for a tightrope and declares that black pebbles have fallen from a thunder cloud. Attitudes change during a storm, however. Little Chicken Chicken's acrobatics, juggling, and tightrope tricks divert the others' attention and calm their panic. Afterwards, they are eager to follow her on her next imaginative quest. Heap's watercolor renditions of barnyard life strike the correct humorous note, and her chickens' expressions convey emotions. The illustrations are clear and bright enough for sharing with small groups. A satisfying testimony to the value of individuality and imagination.?Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN

I checked this book out of the library, and my two-year-old wanted me to read it every night (sometimes several times!) I renewed it, and she still wants to hear it every night. After two months of nightly reads, it's about time for me to buy the book! I'm not (quite) tired of the book yet, and that's pretty high praise considering how many times I've read it.
Little Chicken Chicken doesn't go along with the crowd, and doesn't get intimidated by others who tease her. In the end, she impresses them all with her courage and creativity. I would hope for the same for my own children.

My son, husband and I love this book. The illustrations have a lot of personality and the story is smart, sweet and encouraging. Little Chicken Chicken and Baby Chick never give up their positivity and all the naysayers want to be like them in the end.
