Dot is a little chicken, who is, let's face it, a little chicken. Can she find a way to pluck up her courage?
"A gently humorous take on conquering fear that's also a fine read-aloud." --Kirkus
Dot is scared of lots of things: wolves, bears, the occasional lawn ornament. But when one of her mother's eggs rolls out of the nest, this nervous chick must find the courage to save the day--and her new sibling So she bravely ventures down the steep hill, into the deep pond, and into the dark woods. Perfect for any kid who needs a little encouragement to face the challenging world, this story proves that sometimes a big hero is just a little chicken.
