Everyone in Chick’s family is too busy to chat with her. But when chatty baby Chick adopts a large egg—she finally finds a friend who is a good listener. When her egg goes missing, Chick is heartbroken, until she finds that it has hatched into a brand-new friend!
"Baby Chick is surrounded by clouds of printed Peep!s throughout the story; these are full of movement indicating unabashed joy. Saturated, summery colors and black-outlined figures lend vibrancy to the story. The text is further enhanced by well-placed, but not overdone, chicken-related puns: Sister is reading A Coop of One’s Own, and when she takes Baby Chick to bed, she suggests “Let’s hit the hay, Baby Chick.
A sweet story told with gentle humor."
– Kirkus Reviews
