Reviews - What do customers think about The Chicken Sisters?
Excellent story for Young Children Oct 24, 2007
My youngest daughter loved the story. I gave it to her for her 5th birthday. I have read this book to her twice already. What a great bonding experience. An I must say I really enjoyed the story as well
Cute story . . . Jul 24, 2002
This is a cute story that my daughter enjoys reading. The illustrations are very nice. For adults, it may seem odd that the the characters are intolerant of the wolf's past (he is now old and harmless) and run him out of town, but this will be lost on kids. It is a humorous story, our 2 year old understands some of the humor, while other parts are geared toward the adult funny bone.
Where's the sequel??!! Nov 6, 2000
We have several great books of Laura Numeroff's in our library, yet I must say this is THE favorite of our 3 yr old boy, our 8 yr old girl and myself! These sisters are nutty - but darn smart - you will fall in love with them at your first reading. And believe me - you will be pulling this book out again and again to read. The illustrations are darling too. A true gem of a book for all!!
A Wonderful Book! Aug 16, 2000
After reading the quirky synopsis of this book I bought it for my daughter and have been reading it to her since her birth 11 months ago. She loves it! The illustrations are colorful and lush, the animals depicted are realistic without being scary. The story is perfect, not too long and kind to sleep-deprived parents (no tongue twisters!). It is cute, whimsical and snappy. This is a book you won't mind reading again and again and again...
Self-confident sisters bring laughs for adults and kids Dec 13, 1998
This is a great book, as the official reviews agree. I counsel parents who worry their kids won't feel confident or will be the target of teasing or gossip (because they were conceived w/ some extra medical help, for ex. - see my book Helping the Stork). These sisters have such joy and enthusiasm, undampened by their grumpy neighbors, and they win over everyone. Carol Frost Vercollone
