Six Little Chicks

Today is World Book Day and we've been reading this lovely new book by Jez Alborough called Six Little Chicks, which is released today!

Six Little Chicks is the story of a mother hen watching over her 5 baby chicks and her unhatched egg, making sure the naughty fox doesn't try to gobble them up! Miss C loved counting all the chicks to make sure they were still OK and hiding behind her hands when the other farm animals tried to warn mother hen that the nasty fox was nearby!

The book is really great to read, easy to follow and there are repetition words and phrases that encouraged Miss C to join in. She was even acting out the actions the little chicks do such as flapping her arms when one of the chick went flap, flap, flap. The pictures are really lovely and colourful too.


If your kids enjoyed books like HUG, TALL and YES or the Duck in the Truck series, all by Jez Alborough, then Six Little Chicks will definitely go down well with them and a great Easter read too!

Six Little Chicks is available to buy at a RRP of £10.99 published by Doubleday Childrens.

We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
