When Mother Hen takes her little chickens to the playground for the first time, they feel a little timid. It’s crowded and exciting—but also a little scary. As they watch the big dogs, cats, and pigs play on the seesaws, merry-go-round, and swings, the little chickens aren’t sure they want to participate. But when they see the little mice and frogs sliding down the sliding board the little chickens reconsider.
This beloved story, back in print, is about overcoming fears and doing things for the first time with the help of new friends is now back in print!
