Tough Chicks

TITLE: Tough Chicks
AUTHOR: Cece Meng
ILLUSTRATOR: Melissa Suber
PUBLISHER: Clarion Books

The three chicks Penny, Polly, and Molly are busy, touch little chicks. Some of the other animals on the farm think they are too loud and cause too much trouble. When a storm comes to the farm, will the chicks be able to show how useful they really are? The illustrations were exaggerated cartoon animals (for example, big round cows and sheep) which went along well with this story although I didn’t care much for the illustrations. Preschool through early elementary aged children will enjoy this book.

I recommend this book for an elementary school library.
