Little Chick

By Amy Hest

Now in a cunning, beautifully designed boxed set, this tiny trio of gentle tales is just waiting to nest inside a new-baby gift or an Easter basket.

Little Chick may be a good and patient gardener, as Old-Auntie observes, but what happens when you really need your carrot before it grows tall? And what if you skip like a pro but still can’t lift your kite in the air? Or you’re a really good stretcher but can’t reach your favorite star? With affection and humor, Amy Hest offers three little stories 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 Chick’s gestures and movements with a mastery that captures the spirit of every young child.

  • Irresistible package, irresistible character, irresistible price.
  • Collaboration by Amy Hest and Anita Jeram, two picture book heavyweights.
  • Easter buy, spring buy, new baby buy, stocking stuffer buy, gift basket buy, impulse buy.
