Little Chick’s Springtime

Tiger Tales. Jan. 2024. 12p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781664351028.
Baby-Toddler–A “squishy, glittery chick” pops out from the cover to announce, “It’s springtime!” Throughout the story, different animals and plants celebrate in their own unique ways the coming of the new season; readers are encouraged to press the chick’s “squishy tummy” to join in the celebration. Pastel illustrations with endearing animals along with a darling chick will make this a fun book to share with a toddler who will no doubt enjoy pressing on the squishy chick without ever “hurting” it.
VERDICT Sweetly complicit animals help welcome spring in a novel interaction that mirrors how humans play with babies. During story hour lessons, this will be a favorite glimpse of one of the best seasons, for both the young and their caregivers.
