Released April 2009

Reviewed by Bob Walch


This nicely illustrated picture book features a small chick who goes missing and gets the entire town in an uproar.

One of Mother hen's seven young chicks suddenly disappears when she is hanging out the wash one day. Looking high and low, the frantic mother can't find her baby. She then enlists the help of her neighbors, the local fire department and the police to locate the missing chick. Fortunately, the story ends on a happy note when someone finally notices there is a little, yellow fluffy chicken asleep in the laundry basket!

Embedded in this story there's a simple message for toddlers who might be prone to wandering away from mom or dad. You might want to remind your child after you read this, "When we are outside always keep close and make sure I CAN SEE WHERE YOU ARE at all times!"
