Five adorable baby chickens are determined to have some fun before bed in Five Fuzzy Chicks by Diana Murray, a rhyming farm story with counting elements.

It’s time for bed, but these five chicks are full of energy!

They race out of the coop to visit all of the other animals. But the dog is so snuggly and the hay is so comfy, and these five fuzzy chicks can’t help but fall asleep one by one.


Before long, the sleeping chicks are scattered all over the farm! What will Mama Hen do?


As playful as it is soothing, Five Fuzzy Chicks, illustrated by Sydney Hanson, the NY Times Bestselling illustrator of Why A Daughter Needs a Dad, is the perfect story for tucking your own little chicks into bed.
