Lois Lund’s Baby Chick: An Easter Story is a delightful children’s tale that is sure to charm little readers everywhere.
Finding appropriate reading material for young kids can be a challenge due to the glut of choices available these days. Just the classics alone can already take up a huge amount of space in a home library, not to mention the hours of reading enjoyment that they offer. So, does that mean that parents do not have to search for works by newer authors anymore? Certainly not, because then they would
miss out on charming little tales like Baby Chick: An Easter Story by Lois Lund.
The premise is very simple, as most kids’ stories tend to be; there’s a newly born baby chick and the author describes how she takes care of it. Lund, however, gives it a bit of a twist thanks to her Christian faith. She includes her own reflections on what Easter time means in terms of her belief in Jesus Christ. Another great touch is the inclusion of some activity pages that encourage young readers to paint and
draw elements from the story. This additional interactive feature is definitely a fun way to get little kids more involved in the baby chick’s adventures. It will also help to stimulate their imaginations as they come up with their own ideas for what could happen to the baby chick. Furthermore, the illustrations by A.J. Eadie are some other great winning points as the artist has a dreamlike, whimsical style that helps bring the story to life with color and charm.
One thing that would have improved the book further is an increased length and more detail about the baby chick’s activities. Kids would likely want to know more about their little fictional friend as it grows bigger everyday. So, if you are in search of a new bedtime story for your young one, be sure to check out Lois Lund’s Baby Chick: An Easter Story.
