About The Book

These chickens aren't so chicken!

When Mother Hen takes her little chickens to the playground for the first time, they feel a little timid. It’s crowded and exciting—but also a little scary. As they watch the big dogs, cats, and pigs play on the seesaws, merry-go-round, and swings, the little chickens aren’t sure they want to participate. But when they see the little mice and frogs sliding down the sliding board the little chickens reconsider.

A beloved story about overcoming fears and doing things for the first time with the help of new friends!
