Picture Book Friday: Whose Chick Are You?
Whose Chick Are You? by Nancy Tafuri
I love Nancy Tafuri's picture books - they're always simple and sweet and her illustrations are fabulous. I have a soft spot for swans (identifying as I do with the Ugly Duckling), so this one hit that spot. An egg hatches and the chick doesn't know who he belongs to. Neither do Goose, Duck, Hen, or Bird. But the Swans are not far away and soon the family is reunited because of course they know that he belongs to them. I love animal-sound books and this one has plenty of clucks, quacks, honks, and chirps. A lovely, reassuring story.
