We Adopted a Baby Chick | Book Review

We Adopted a Baby Chick encompasses humor, heart, friendship and self-discovery of oneself. A truly adorable children’s book! – Momma Braga


An adorable baby chicken is the latest addition to the family in this sweet picture book based on a true story. An irresistible and unique twist on a sibling story and for anyone who loves cute baby animals!

Albert the sheep is the only one unhappy about the new addition to the family. Tina is a tiny, fluffy baby chick — and she gets all the attention. Albert is big and loud, and he can’t resist Mom’s vegetables (“Get out of the garden, Albert!”). Sprout the dog doesn’t have time for Albert anymore. The cats only have eyes for Tina. And though he tries his hardest, Albert’s gifts to the family aren’t as welcome as Tina’s eggs.

Then one day, Tina faces a danger and only Albert can save her. Will Albert be able to put his feelings aside and truly welcome Tina into his flock?


We Adopted a Baby Chick is a delightful children’s book that had us giggling along the way as we follow our favorite lamb, Albert from We Adopted a Baby Lamb.

In this children’s book, Albert needs to discover his place in the family as he grows up and a new baby chick gets the attention of all. In his self-discovery, he realizes how important and special he really is. In the end, he gains a new friendship and he knows exactly his new superhero role within his family. Albert does not need to be the smallest or cutest as he is the strongest and proud.

For this #MelAndNikkiReview, we give it 5 BAAAAA out of 5! Simply perfection in every way as we enjoyed this book from beginning to end. A must read!
