Books to bring in spring!

Easter and Spring are soon upon us, and kids are very much ready to be outdoors playing! Candlewick Press has two great books to celebrate Spring life! These two books would make a great gift in the basket this weekend, or to just give to your child.The Little Chick is a great little story about a little chick and her Auntie. My kids
were so into this book as the story of Little Chick unfolded. Little Chick really wants a few things to happen: her carrot to grow big, her kite to fly high, and to reach a star. I love how this book illustrates to keep trying for what you want and to be patient in the waiting times. I also think that this story is precious how the Little Chick gets help and advice from her wise Old Auntie. author: Amy Hest
illustrator: Anita Jeram
Available for purchase now, online or in book stores with a suggested retail price of $17.99.
Did you ever lose one of your children, or at least, thought you did? Valeri Gorbachev wrote a fun little tale of The Missing Chick who really wasn't missing, just couldn't be found right away. This engaging story is a great expression of community help, Everyone is on a mission to find the hen's missing chick. My kids had a great time guessing where that little chick was, and was surprised to find out where the little peep ended up!
The Missing Chick was just released this April and has a suggested retail price of $15.99. This book can also be found in bookstores or online.
