Taro Gomi's little chicks are on a big adventure—and when they arrive home again, their loving parents will be waiting to hear all about it!

From the beloved author of Everyone Poops, a charming tale of three little chicks who are ready to explore the big, wide world together! Running in sunshine and in the rain, over grassy fields and past friendly neighbors, these chicks are as eager for adventure as they are to run back home into the arms of their caring parents at the end of a long day. Internationally beloved author-illustrator Taro Gomi takes the youngest of readers on a journey of adventure, discovery, and excitement, with a reassuring reminder that no matter how far they may roam, there is always love and support waiting for them at home.

ENDEARING AND AFFIRMING MESSAGE: This sweet board book pairs an affirmation of young children's desires to explore with the reassurance of parental care and unconditional support that is always waiting in the wings.
