For fans of Richard Scarry, a cute-as-a-button picture book featuring dozens of chickens as they set out for the county fair!

Chickens, chickens everywhere—going to the county fair! Follow a family of chickens as they prepare for their big outing. You’ll see chickens wondering what to wear, baking pies, painting their toes and knitting socks. A stroll through town reveals that everyone else is excited for the festivities too. There are so many sights to see! Over there we see racers sprinting to the finish line. Over here, farmers showing off their best crops. Clowns, entertainers and musicians take the stage. And don’t forget the rides: the Ferris wheel, super slide and merry-go-round. Grab some cotton candy and popcorn, because this very silly book will entertain and challenge young readers with searching and counting elements.

GREAT EASTER AND SPRING-TIME PICK

COUNTING CONCEPT: The fun rhymes on each spread invite kids to count those chickens!

RICHARD SCARRY/WHERE’S WALDO APPEAL: Kids will love busy scenes filled with playful details and search and-find element challenges listed in the back of the book for additional counting.

ADORABLE ARTWORK: Cute, bright and cheery illustrations.

PRAISE FOR Big and Small, Room for All by Jo Ellen Bogart:

“Bogart presents a way for young children to explore the concepts of big and small in a way few picture books address…. Both text and illustrations have a modest sense of the sublime in their subject, one that comes across clearly. A necessary purchase that surpasses the ordinary fare.”—Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“…not to downplay the beauty of the text itself. [Jo Ellen Bogart’s] simple rhymes take the reader on a journey from the deep expanse of the universe to the tiny organisms revealed under a microscope…. Stunning.”—Starred Review, Quill & Quire

“Word choice is highly suitable for the earliest independent readers. This book will serve as a springboard for discussing the way children perceive size in the natural world.”—School Library Journal

“Introducing small children to a big idea, this handsome picture book uses an open-ended approach that could lead to good discussions.”—Booklist

“Gorgeous watercolors and simple text convey a range of sizes, from swirling galaxies to magnified microorganisms…. Such comparisons…continue throughout this thought-provoking book.” —Book Links
