I liked the relationship between the dad and the baby chicken. it encourages a dynamic relationship to stories. It also shows a child making up a story for her dad and mirrors the way a child would write. It is a also respectful of a child's trying to make up stories and the way one would illustrate their own stories (probably at a 5 or 6 y/o level - but appreciated by my 3 y/o.) It is a very loving and affectionate story.
