Busy-busy Little Chick

Janice N. Harrington (Author), J. Brian Pinkney (Illustrator)
Little Chick's mother is all cluck and no action. Mama Nsoso knows her old nest isn't the cozy home she and her brood need. But whenver she voews to start building a new house, she's distracted--by sweety-meaty worms, cruncy-munchy crickets, or picky-pecky corn. Luckily, her Little Chick is a can-do critter. While the rest of his family are stuffing themselves silly, he's quietly working, but by bit, day by day. Janice N. Harrington's delightful retelling of a Central African story is perfectly matched with Brian Pinkney's jazzy depiction of an industrious little creature doing what a big creature shoul. -- From dust jacket
