Chooky-doodle-doo written by Jan Whiten & Illustrated by Sinead Hanley
Published by Walker Books
When a little chooky chick happens upon a worm, the authors naturally ask us, what should he do.
Page by page we add another little chooky chick, endeavouring to capture this worm, until a rooster finally joins them. They form a crew and with much team work, lots of feathers flying, they find the source of all that chooky-doodle-doo is not a worm, but the farmer’s buried shoe.
The illustrations are crisp and vibrant and so pleasing to the eye. The illustrator has done a great job of depicting the cutest little chooky chicks that kids will surely love.
The rhyme and rhythm sequence is short and sharp, lending this to be a great counting primer and read aloud. I believe it will capture an audience as young as 2 and still be enjoyed up to 5 years of age.
