The Lovereading4Kids comment

Chicky chicks, buzzy bees and kitty cats romp in sun and snuggle in the warmth, until pitter-patter, down comes the rain. A great read-aloud, sing-along board book, full of fun-to-imitate animal sounds, rhythm and movement.

A Piece of Passion from David Bennett, Publisher, Boxer Books

This is fabulous writing! When I opened the unsolicited envelope and saw the dummy for Chicky with some notes from Cathy MacLennan - I called her immediately! In publishing everyone is looking for something new and Cathy had achieved that in every aspect of her presentation. She had singled out Boxer Books for her first book. She plays with language in an unfettered manner, full of fun and a style of illustration that is unlike any other. Lucky Boxer Books!

Synopsis

Chicky Chicky Chook Chook by Cathy Maclennan

Cathy MacLennan's popular debut title, Chicky Chicky Chook Chook, is now available as a board book with a touch-and-feel cover. Chicky chicks, buzzy bees and kitty cats romp in sun and snuggle in the warmth, until pitter-patter, down comes the rain. A great read-aloud, sing-along book, full of fun-to-imitate animal sounds, rhythm and movement.

Reviews

The whimsical illustrations finely complement the sightly offbeat rhythms of the text making this book fun to read and listen to. Carousel

Full of energy and smiles. A real classic. – The Northern Echo

This book deserves a ten-foot sign saying ‘Read Me Now. – Learning Support Magazine

This is a true celebration of the joys of life . . . a book that simply cries out to be
performed. – Books for Keeps

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
