My nephews love for me to read to them, so when I got this novel for review I was very excited to share this with them! They were amazed with the different illustrations, as they were so detailed and beautiful and went along with the story so perfectly. The characters were so adorable and memorable, my youngest nephew now goes around mimicking the little baby chick in the book. I can not wait to start on book number two with them! If your looking for a book with amazing illustrations and a good moral storyline than this book is exactly what your looking for!
