Dot is a little chicken, who is, let's face it, a little chicken. Can she find a way to pluck up her courage?

"A gently humorous take on conquering fear that's also a fine read-aloud." -- Kirkus

Dot is scared of lots of things: wolves, bears, the occasional lawn ornament. But when one of her mother's eggs rolls out of the nest, this nervous chick must find the courage to save the day--and her new sibling! So she bravely ventures down the steep hill, into the deep pond, and into the dark woods. Perfect for any kid who needs a little encouragement to face the challenging world, this story proves that sometimes a big hero is just a little chicken.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Dot is a bespectacled ""little chicken"" (small poultry) who also happens to be a ""little chicken"" (somewhat cowardly). The book begins by chronicling her fears: spiders, wolves, bears, and even garden gnomes. One day, an egg containing Dot's future sibling rolls down the chicken-coop ramp, and Dot runs off to rescue it. The egg bounces through the farmyard, in and out of a pond, up and down a tree, and into a deep, dark forest. As Dot's chase progresses, it becomes more and more perilous, and she faces her list of fears one by one, ultimately catching the egg just as her new sister hatches. The illustrations wonderfully depict the contrast between the cozy, retro farm with its cartoonish animals and the surrounding landscapes, awash with deep color and naturalistic detail. Amusing wordplay prevents what might otherwise be a didactic ending: Sometimes a hero is just a little chicken. The story delivers reassurance and inspiration along with its shining sense of humor.--Connie Fletcher Copyright 2019 Booklist"
