Little Naomi, Little Chick


  • About The Book


Little Naomi has a busy day! She gets ready for school, plays with all her friends, builds with blocks, bakes mud pies, colors pictures, eats lunch, and helps mom with the shopping. Little Chick has to stay at home with the other barnyard animals, but that doesn't stop him from having adventures of his own.

In this sweet and fun book, two parallel stories run side-by-side, linked by the implicit friendship between Naomi and Little Chick and brought to life by endearing illustrations.

  • My Review
A charming book with delightful illustrations. It's a fun story about a preschooler and a chick going in a similar direction but not meeting, yet having a friendship of being understood. Chick stays home with other barnyard friends, while Naomi starts her morning routine before heading to preschool. Once there, she plays with friends, colors, builds, bakes, and then shops with her mommy and eats with daddy all in one day. Plus, there's bath time and lullabies before bed. With simple text, early readers will enjoy every detail. I especially like the rhythm and repetition of reading aloud with my grandchildren, "But NOT little chick."

5/5 stars. Highly recommend.
