Beautiful Board Books from Chronicle Books






On this snow day, I've been catching up on my reading, which means I am surrounded by stacks of books. Book spine poetry is a fun exercise wherever a #bookstack exists! These board books from Chronicle Books are fun inside, too. These books encourage exploration and invite inquiry. Young readers will be engaged by the beautiful art, concepts, and stories.

The magical storytelling we've come to expect from Molly Idle now in board book form! in Flora and the Chicks, Flora's encounter with a nest full of eggs and a temporarily absent mother leaves Flora quite busy! The story unfolds with each page turn and reveals itself with each gate fold. All goes well until the little chicks bring her a tasty worm, luckily mother hen returns just in time! 







In Fly! young readers move story pieces along as a bird makes a home in a tree, meets a mate, makes a nest, guards eggs, and watches new life take flight.
