About the Author:

Amy E. Sklansky is the author of From the Doghouse: Poems to Chew On and Skeleton Bones and Goblin Groans: Poems for Halloween (both Henry Holt). Where Do Chicks Come From? is her third book for children. A former editor of children's books, Ms. Sklansky now writes them. She lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with her husband and two young children.



Pam Paparone has illustrated many books for children, including Mail For Husher Town; Raindrop, Plop!; and I Like Cats. She has also written and illustrated several books, including Who Built the Ark? Ms. Paparone lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

From Booklist:

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
