Little Chick may be a good and patient gardener, as Old-Auntie observes, but what if you simply canít wait for your carrot to grow tall? What if you skip like a pro but still canít lift your kite in the air? Or if youíre a really good stretcher but canít 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 Chickís gestures and movements with a mastery that captures the spirit of every young child.
The creators of the New York Times bestselling Kiss Good Night offer a trio of gentle tales about a special intergenerational bond.
