PreSchool-Grade 2 - Sklansky's clear and accurate text begins with fertilization when the rooster's "sperm joins the growing egg" and concludes with the dry, fluffy baby. She uses the correct terminology to discuss the anatomy of the egg and the purpose of each part. She also explains that the "egg you eat for breakfast" is unfertilized and cannot grow into a chick. As the hen sits on her nest for the 21-day incubation period, the day-to-day development of the embryonic chick is detailed in easy-to-understand paragraphs and full-color drawings. The illustrations are soft and friendly, but retain enough realism for children to understand the subject matter. Suggested activities and a list of stories about chicks are appended. This is an enjoyable and informative introduction to scientific information. - Carolyn Janssen, Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, OH

K-Gr. 2. From the Let's-Read-and-Find-Out series, this informative book presents the growth of a chick during 21 days. Beginning as a "tiny white spot" inside the mother, the egg is fertilized and forms a white, a yolk, and a shell. The hen lays the egg, keeps it warm, turns it, and clucks to it. After 20 days, the chick begins to breathe and to make sounds. It pecks at its shell until it hatches. Then the hen warms the chick while its feathers dry. Neither flowery nor clinical, Sklansky's straightforward presentation hits just the right note for young children, who will find the details of life inside the egg fascinating. Paparone contributes a series of illustrations in warm tones, set against clean, white backgrounds. Including many cutaway drawings of chickens and eggs, the clearly delineated pictures are often rounded in form and warmed with sunny colors. This fine book concludes with a double-page spread featuring activities to try at home and a half-dozen chick-themed picture books to read aloud. Carolyn Phelan

The other Stage 1 books I've read with my son seem to be shorter, with fewer words. He has begun to pick out some sight words and the simpler books work well for that. In my opinion, this one might have been better rated for the Stage 2 level in this series.
I will certainly return to this book with him. It is well written with accurate information and has clear illustrations.
