Dora's Chicks (Dora)


Product Description
Product Details


PreS-A fat, white hen, first introduced in Dora's Eggs (Little Tiger, 1997), leaves the nest "for a minute" to find breakfast for her six chicks, and when she returns they are gone. She scours the farmyard and discovers one or more of them with other animals. Dora reclaims her brood and explains that chickens do not eat the way pigs, ducks, horses, or birds do. However, children unfamiliar with barnyard animals will not understand what is happening. For example, the piglets are not shown nursing even though Dora explains that that is how Penny Pig feeds her babies. The math is too complicated for preschoolers. While the illustrations are large and bright, the animals are not expressive and Dora and the chicks are an unusual looking flock with thick, feathered legs. For counting and finding animals, Charlotte Pomerantz's One Duck, Another Duck or Nancy Tafuri's Have You Seen My Duckling? (both Greenwillow, 1984) can't be beat, and there are many other farm-animal books from which to choose.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

The eggs from Dora's Eggs have hatched; a mother hen searches the barnyard for her wayward offspring, hidden in the hay and blending with the buttercups. Ages 3-7. (Mar.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
