A girl is disappointed when she receives a chicken as a birthday gift from her abuela, until she realizes the chicken is planning a bigger present for her special day.


Cute book!  I must admit that I didn’t figure out what the chicken and other pets were up to until the very end of the book.  What a surprise for the girl – and me!

Synopsis: Little Duck celebrates his first birthday with the other animals on the farm by copying their examples, from shearing off all his feathers to taking a mudbath, before enjoying Farmer Brown’s yummy frosted maple cake.

This is another cute book by Doreen Cronin.  Little duck doesn’t know how to get ready for the big party so he watches all the other animals and copies what the others do.  I always enjoy her books, but also the illustrations.  This is a book that can be used for a read aloud or just one on one.
