It's springtime!  Let's follow the wind and see where it blows.  The wind makes our kites fly and boats sail, but watch out for the darkening skies and the changing winds, because there might be a storm coming!  A fun rhyming time for ages 3 and up.

Those funny chicks from The Trouble with Chickens are back in a series all their own. Dirt, Sugar, Poppy, and Sweetie are not your typical chicks. They might be cute, but they are also daring and always ready to solve a mystery or fight crime. When a very scared squirrel named Tail comes to tell them about the “big and scary thing” that has landed in the backyard, the chicken squad is on the case. With the use of some strange camouflage and deductive reasoning the chicks investigate the big, green, round, and shiny object that just might be from out of this world. Beginner chapter book readers will enjoy these hilarious chicks and the wonderful illustrations that capture all the silliness this story has to offer. (Grades 1-3 School Library Journal)
