From Booklist:

PreS. The illustrator of the Caldecott Honor Book Have You See My Ducklings? (1984) returns to the farmyard in this cozy picture book about a big mother hen and her five newly hatched chicks. Using the simplest words about sound and movement, she describes the chicks' search for food ("Peep! What can we eat?"), as each chick in turn spies a fat wiggly worm, a spotted crawly bug, a fuzzy butterfly, a red strawberry, a swimming trout--until wise Mama Hen finally shows them how to run to the corn patch and scratch, scratch, scratch, and peck. Created with brush pen, watercolor pencils, and ink, the gorgeous double-page spreads, in warm shades of red, yellow, and brown, manage to be both clear and fuzzy, simple and rich--from the opening illustration picturing the hatchlings to the final view of the chicks in Mama's encircling embrace, when "It's time to snuggle and cuddle and sleep." A good choice to pair with Margaret Wise Brown's classic, Good Night Moon.Hazel Rochman
