Six Little Chicks Summary

Six Little Chicks by Jez Alborough

Busy Hen has five little chicks to look after while making sure number six - still an egg- stays warm. The last thing she needs is hairy, scary Fox sniffing about. She is frantic when the other birds warn her that her chicks are in danger, but her five little chicks are a lot braver than she realises! The rollicking rhythmic text is rammed with catchy refrains that beg to be shouted out. Children will love the repeated action words and thinking of new ways to act them out.

Six Little Chicks Reviews

"Dramatic and funny ... it's a winner for children aged 2+" -- Amanda Craig The Times "This charming, heart-warming tale will delight children, as it is full of bright artwork telling us about the funny, energy-fuelled story of six courageous chicks" South Wales Evening Post "Jez Alborough gives Chick Lit a good name ... The book has a bright, jolly and yet predatory feel. The chicks are intensely yellow and the fox has fearsome green eyes - dreaming of a snappy Easter" -- Kate Kellaway Guardian "Beautiful illustrations and a bouncy, rhyming text" -- Sarah Kingsford Sunday Express "This beautifully illustrated, rhyming tale uses repetition of words and movements that small children will love to mimic" Booktrust
