Nora's Chicks

author: Patricia MacLachlan
illustrator: Kathryn Brown

Nora and her family have just arrived from Russia and are making a new home on the American frontier. The prairie is very different from the forested hills Nora is used to. Most of all, itís lonely. Papa has the cows he sings to as he milks them. Baby brother Milo has a dog to follow him wherever he goes. But Nora has no one and nothing to call her own until Papa brings home a dozen chicks and two geese. Nora names each one, and they follow her everywhere ó even to church! But what will happen when one of her beloved chicks goes missing?

From Newbery Medalist Patricia MacLachlan comes a reassuring story about new beginnings and making friends.
