Big Fat Hen
by Keith Baker

Review by: Jacqueline Kilmer

     One, Two.... buckle my shoe.  This classic nursery rhyme takes on new meaning when Keith Baker brings the words to life in his vibrant illustrations. Each page is a visual delight.   Mother hens and their chicks are the performers in this rhyme. 
      The hens in this tale lay their eggs and attempt to catch dinner before the eggs hatch.  These clever little chicks demonstrate the actions in the rhyme.  There are many opportunities for children to practice counting skills.  They can identify the colors on the industrious mothers too! 
       Keith Baker has used acrylics on illustration board to bring his fowl to life.  The large, clear text is perfect for an emerging reader to hone his reading skills.
       I recommend this colorful story book  for all children. The very young will be captivated by the colors and the action. The four to seven age  group will enjoy reading and counting each and every page.  Share it with a child , you will be hooked too!
