Today’s beautiful picture book is Peggy by Anna Walker via @raincoastbooks a long time favourite of the blog!  One of those books that we KNEW by the cover we were going to love!

Peggy is a simple country chicken living a quiet, solitary life when a great gust of wind sweeps her away to the city!  Charming visuals of this adorable chicken against backdrops of city life make it a lap book ripe with things to spot and discuss with your smalls.  Featuring several wordless pages this book comes to life in the readers hands and smalls will relate to Peggy, a small hero in a big world.  The story also has a subtle message about leaving your comfort zone and sharing your life with friends.

A gorgeous, cozy book perfect for a blanket and a rainy day!  Recommended for smalls 2.5 and up.

Today’s picture book is Chicken Story Time by Sandy Asher, illustrated by Mark Fearing via @penguinrandomhouse.

We are partial to birds here at the blog so this one was a treat to review!  One fine day at the library a chicken joins story time and life is never the same.  After realizing how great story time is increasingly more chickens show up for the party.  Chickens & children prove a daunting combination for our librarian until she comes up with an excellent solution.

Sparse text and busy drawings make this picture book ideal for smalls toddler aged and up–a rarity in picture books which are often too lengthy for those three and below.  This one is filled with clever, hijinks-laden comedy for smalls to spot and loads of room for adult readers to add flourish while reading aloud.

Recommended for smalls 2.5 & up, librarians & of course, chickens everywhere.
