I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Count Your Chickens by Jo Ellen Bogart
To be published on February 7, 2017.
For fans of Richard Scarry, a cute-as-a-button picture book featuring dozens of chickens as they set out for the county fair!
Chickens, chickens everywhere — going to the county fair! Follow a family of chickens as they prepare for their big outing. You’ll see chickens wondering what to wear, baking pies, painting their toes and knitting socks. A stroll through town reveals that everyone else is excited for the festivities too. There are so many sights to see! Over there we see racers sprinting to the finish line. Over here, farmers showing off their best crops. Clowns, entertainers and musicians take the stage. And don’t forget the rides: the Ferris wheel, super slide and merry-go-round. Grab some cotton candy and popcorn, because this very silly book will entertain and challenge young readers with searching and counting elements.
This book is an impressive rhyming tale about tons of chickens going to the county fair. The illustrations are adorable, and the chickens are truly doing everything in this fictional world. My favorite part is that at the back of the book there are questions for each page, so you can flip back and count how many chickens are knitting or are dressed as clowns, etc.
Perfect for children ages 3-6, this book is one that would be fun to read over and over again. There is so much going on on each page, the reader is very likely to find new details with each read. And you could easily make up your own questions – for counting or whatever else you’re inclined to ask your children while reading.
