PreSchool-K—As the sun rises, two swans awake and leave their egg on the shore while they swim away to find food. The other feathered creatures are surprised by the sight of it. "CLUCK! CLUCK! Whose egg is this?" "QUACK! QUACK! Whose egg is this?" Then, when a fuzzy gray hatchling emerges, the question becomes, "Whose chick are you?" Mother Swan knows the answer, and readers who are attentively searching the pages will often detect the swans hovering close by. Tafuri's sunlit watercolor and brush-pen illustrations magnify each inquisitive animal so that it appears to be life-size. Children will find it satisfying to witness the meeting of parents and their offspring, and they are likely to sing along with the chirps, honks, clucks, and quacks while they jump into this vividly drawn world.—Susan Weitz, formerly at Spencer-Van Etten School District, Spencer, NY

With her typically large, appealing nature images, Tafuri again transforms a childhood worry into a reassuring story. When a chick hatches out of an egg, neither Goose, Duck, Hen, Bird, nor the chick knows to whom it belongs. But Swan knows. The artwork's close-up perspective and the combination of large type, onomatopoeia, and the clues to Little Chick's parents scattered through the pictures will draw children into the scenes. Little ones will be delighted to discover the hatchling's parents swimming nearby in the reeds. Overflowing the pages, the softly brushed pen-and-watercolor illustrations appear simplistic but, in fact, offer a charming visual narrative, as cozy as a parent's lap, that will assuage a toddler's fear of abandonment.
