Author(s): Cheryl Hanson & Jan Wolff

Early Experiences & Issues

Chiquita, a determined young hen, longs to raise a family of her own. The other barnyard animals look on sadly each day as Farmer Olson carries her eggs away. Then one day, he brings Chiquita a dozen large assorted eggs to hatch. But when her brood is born, foster mother Chiquita, has her hands full she scrabbles to meet each of their unique and individual needs. It is only through a series of mishaps and adventures that Chiquita and her children learn what it really means to be a family. Chiquita's Children: Teaching Children about Foster Families is the newest addition to the Small Horizons Let's Talk series written by teachers and mental health professionals to teach young children crisis, coping, tolerance and service skills. It facilitates discussion and provides tips about blended families and foster care.
