Doreen Cronin has a unique talent for endowing farm animals with funny human abilities. And thanks to illustrator Kevin Cornell, the members of the Chicken Squad and Tail the squirrel are really funny-looking, too (especially when the chicks camouflage themselves as grass). The chicks' misapprehension of the nervous squirrel's encounter in the yard makes for perfect early reader-level humor, too. This is a fun, silly book with lots of laughs and a bit of edutainment as well.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
