PreSchool-K This pleasant repetitive story is brilliantly illustrated in batik on paper, making full use of the large format. One by one the farm animals invite Mother Hen to join their activities, but she declines, explaining that she must keep her eggs warm. Then one day, ten little yellow chicks hatch. Each of the animals tells another the news and comes to visit the proud mother as she takes the chicks for their first walk. Effectively contrasting the glowing colors of the animals, barn, and barnyard is a double page with an elevated exterior view of the whole barn in a driving rain, Mother Hen a bright spot through the window. The text is somewhat static; however, the combination of counting, animal and sound identification, and bright uncluttered illustrations makes this tidy biology lesson a charming addition to picture book collections.Virginia Opocensky, Lincoln City Libraries, Nebr .
