PreSchool-Grade 2-This slim, easy-to-read volume derives its title from the foot movements a chicken makes while looking for food. The little boy who owns the hen narrates the story, describing the action in the illustrations. The large-print text of one to three sentences per page can be easily handled by beginning readers. The pen-and-ink and watercolor drawings are predominantly in soft tones of yellow and brown; some are almost comical. Small illustrations and hand-printed captions add more general information to the main text. The front endpapers have pictures of 12 different breeds of hens, while the back endpapers sport the corresponding roosters. However, all are unlabeled. A nice purchase, but not a necessary one.
