Product Description

Review

"This clever book teaches children how to read the different meanings conveyed by words and pictures, and how to make sense of a story for themselves." (Anthony Browne S Magazine, Sunday Express)

"The highly patterned red, orange and yellow graphics are as fresh and funny as they were in 1968 and will make 2-4s scream with laughter" (The Times)

"The pictures tell an action packed story full of drama and surprise" (Julia Eccleshere Guardian)

"This marvellous, perfect, utterly simple book has achieved iconic status, a true classic" (Carousel)

"All young children will enjoy the tale of Rosie the hen and her walk around the farm followed by a hungry but thankfully hapless fox" (Sunday Express) --This text refers to the Board book edition.

Book Description

This timeless picture book by Pat Hutchins is now over thirty years old and still a firm favourite.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful story that is especially good for little ones. I read it to my Pre-Kindergarten class and they loved it. It tells the actions of Rosie, a hen, walking around the barnyard totally oblivious to the fox on her heels. This book is a fun way for kids to learn directional words. For example, Rosie goes "through the fence." The picture shows the fox going over. The class loved to tell about what was happening with the fox. Sometimes he gets himself into a lot trouble following the hen! You will have to read it to find out what happens in the end!

Format: Paperback
Rosie's Walk is surely by now a classic in the collection of bedtime stories for young children, whether or not they can read for themselves. This delightful children's book provides a good story with rich and detailed illustrations. The words of the storyline are minimal and tell in simple language where Rosie goes on her walk. The total lack of reference to what happens around Rosie as she walks (and this is where the illustrations come into their own) adds to the humour of this enchanting tale.
Pat Hutchins is a consummate artist and has captured the story of Rosie's Walk in her pictures, with the words of the storyline virtually redundant. This book is an essential for young children. They will love to share it with others as well as enjoy 'reading' their own story to Pat Hutchins' witty illustrations. It's a quick read for parents too!

I remember reading this when I was a kid so I bought it for mine.
I wasn't sure my kids were going to like it but they got the idea of it straight away and started telling me what's happening and going to happen to the fox on the next page just by the pictures. He does ask for it now and then. It's just a little simple book but enjoyable. For the money I thought it was worth buying.

A lovely book with lots on each page to look at and discuss with your child, my little girl adores this book and loves to see what will happen to the silly fox on each page as he follows the oblivious Rosie about the farmyard - a must for any book box!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 21 Mar 2010
Format: Paperback
A book that's been printed for a large number of years which gets a remake with a CD that the young reader will just love to help with their experience. Presented as a special present to my nephew this made a real impression as he got to see how an almost Looney Toon fox was outsmarted by a hen on her walk. Great fun, full of wonderful pictures with vivid colours that just stand out. A real gem and one that will continue to inspire for many more years.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I LOVE this book - it allows the child to feel 'clever' as they see the fox's antics while the hen is oblivious - humorous, neat and the launch pad for a new approach to children's picture books!
