This is a book about this process. Owen the mouse loves Easter and gets an Easter basket full of goodies, each of which he proclaims to be his "favorite" as he gobbles it up-except for his little yellow candy chick, which is the same color as his favorite blanket. Owen proceeds to act out kids "cherishing" behavior, finally kissing the chick goodnight.
The book seems to strike a chord with both parents and kids. I imagine it's because it's a behavior we all recognize, indulge in and identify with, and that fact seems to help us foster a fondness for Owen above and beyond that his intrinsic charm and cuteness engender on their own.
Good story, great illustrations, nice hardboard format is good for the toddler group who like to carry around and "play" with their books as much as actually have them read to them.
This is evolving into a very good series.
is one area you will see me in -- the children's books.
You will no doubt think I am picking out a book for a
child. Not always so. Ever since I took a college
course on children's literature, I have been in love with
the colorful illustrations and sweet words that come
from them and "Owen's Marshmallow Chick" is no

The books shows us Owen, a cute mouse, who
has just received his Easter basket. He has all kind
of yummy goodies in his basket, which everything in
it is clearly his "favorite" -- so he quickly devours each.
But in his basket is something else that is his favorite,
and that is a yellow marshmallow chick. Owen doesn't
eat his chick, but rather he keeps it by his side at all
times, playing with it and even saying "good night" to his
favorite treat -- which is also the same color of his beloved
As a mom of three, I have had children who have had an
attachment to a particular item and this book brought
back those beautiful memories to me. I highly recommend
"Owen's Marshmallow Chick" to parents. It is a board
book, and targeted to young toddlers and preschoolers,
but my oldest children (ages 11 and 9) loved this story
as much as I did. While it would make an excellent
addition to your child's Easter basket, this is a book
that I feel parents and children will be able to enjoy
all year round.
