Publisher Comments:

The creators of the New York Times bestselling KISS GOOD NIGHT offer a trio of gentle tales about a special intergenerational bond.

Little Chick may be a good and patient gardener, as Old-Auntie observes, but what if you simply cant wait for your carrot to grow tall? What if you skip like a pro but still cant lift your kite in the air? Or if youre a really good stretcher but cant reach your favorite star? With affection and humor, Amy Hest offers three vignettes about a curious chick and a loving auntie who knows how to soften disappointments by keeping the spark of wonder alive. And the incomparable Anita Jeram renders Little Chicks gestures and movements with a mastery that captures the spirit of every young child.

Review:

"Old-Auntie the hen, endlessly patient, marvelously kind, helps Little Chick deal with frustration in three stories. As depicted in Jeram's (Guess How Much I Love You) watercolor washes, Old-Auntie's feathered bulk dwarfs Little Chick, and her gestures — holding Little Chick between her wings for a kiss, bending down to peer at her when she's discouraged — are infused with tenderness. Old-Auntie helps Little Chick deal with her eagerness to harvest the carrot she planted; helps Little Chick endure the long wait until her kite finally flies; and assures Little Chick that the star in the night sky that she wants is better off staying just where it is ('I'm afraid the sky just wouldn't be the same without your star,' she says, her big feathery wing looped through Little Chick's spindly one). Hest's (Kiss Good Night) light humor and Jeram's visual charm work as harmoniously together as Little Chick and Old-Auntie themselves. Ages 2 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
