Pip & Pup by Eugene Yelchin
A cute wordless picture book about the friendship between a puppy and a chick. A newborn chick hatches on a farm. The first creature he sees is a puppy. When the pup sees the chick, he playfully chases him, but the chick gets scared and tries to hide in his cracked eggshell. Later, there is a thunderstorm and the puppy gets scared. The chick paddles to the puppy using his cracked eggshell as a boat and comforts the pup. He shares half of the eggshell with him, putting it on his head like a rain hat. When the storm abates and the sun comes out, the two new friends play. When the puppy accidentally sits on the chick’s eggshell, crushing it, he makes it up to the chick by introducing a tennis ball to play with. The book is charming and humorous. And the story is easy for little ones to understand, even with no text, because the illustrations display the animals’ facial expressions in such a way that you can guess what they are feeling.
