Item description for Chicky Chicky Chook Chook by Cathy MacLennan...
Overview Chicks, chickens, cats, and bees on a farm enjoy an active, busy day playing, snoozing, and getting drenched in a thunderstorm before finally going to sleep at night.
What a great read-aloud, sing-aloud, shout-aloud book this is, with its fun-to-imitate animal sounds and rhythmic rhyme. Bright yellow chicks, golden bees, and striped kitty-cats play in the warm sunshine, clucking and buzzing and skitty-scatting. Then they rest, snoozy-woozy. But what is this? The pitter-patter of raindrops. Now the crash, bang, wallop of a storm—how will they get dry? Soon the sun and sweet breezes come out again. Wonderfully textured art (you can practically feel the cats' fur and the chicks' softness), as well as a sleepytime ending, will make this a favorite to read again and again.

Even for a 3 month old! Dec 11, 2007
Someone gave us this book, and since I didn't have anything else, I started reading it to my baby (3 months old) every night before bed. I couldn't BELIEVE IT but she would stare and stare at the cute little (african themed) pictures. The words are probably fun for her to hear, and the simple story is just darling. She will sit still the entire time I read it, and sometimes try to grab the bright little animals. I LOVE this book.
Chicky - this book is awesome! Sep 14, 2007
Normally I am very tired of hearing authors make up new words and using little sound bites, but not with Chicky Chicky Chook Chook. We read this with a classroom of three-year-olds and they were giggling away. My son loved it at least 7 times! I had to keep reading it just to hear him attempting the new sounds he heard. The talent of Cathy MacLennan goes even further with illustrations briming with imagination and texture!
Beautifully illustrated & beautifully written Jun 26, 2007
I bought this book for my nephew who is 18 months old. He absolutely LOVES it. The manner the author/illustrator uses is VERY good. Upon the first reading, my nephew thought the chicks were actually fuzzy. The sounds that make up the text are mesmerizing. The story features bees, chicks, and cats. Children who are learning animals will be captivated. Many times when playing, we'll hear him, "Chicky, chicky, chook chook," or "Snuggle, snuggle, sleepy shine."
I was also taken with the methods of illustration. The author was born in Zimbabwe and now lives in the UK. Influences of Africa are apparent in the vivid and sweet illustrations.
This book is very enjoyable for toddlers and adults alike!
