Too subtle to be used as a new sibling book, this title works best as a friendship story.--Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library"School Library Journal" (01/01/2011)
A perfect read for preschoolers who can learn from Chicken and Horse how to be better friends. Highly Recommended. When Horse arrives to the barn, he cramps the style of the residents -- or so Chicken says. Chicken, Pig, Cow, Horse Around by Ruth Ohi will delight preschoolers and help teach them the value of friendship. Ohi captures the complexity of emotions inherent in relationships...She does this with such sensitivity that her stories never feel moralistic or pedantic. Highly recommended.
The watercolor illustrations are drawn on lots of white space, making the expressive yellow chicken, pink pig, and spotted cow stand out against the pages. Too subtle to be used as a new sibling book, this title works best as a friendship story.--Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library"School Library Journal" (01/01/2011)
