The book gently teaches about chickens by following a sweet little boy as he notices his chickens' behavior and habits. The illustrations are not only super-cute, they illustrate all the funny things chickens do really well. :) It is clear that the author and illustrator understand and have great affection for their chickens.
I love the examples this book gives of chicken behavior-- scratching, creating dust baths, setting on eggs, finding food, hatching chicks, etc etc. If your family has hens, or your kids love visiting the petting zoo or a neighbor's hens, they will love this book.
Some families like teaching their kids that eggs don't come from a box, too. :) This book shares lots of fun facts about the endearing, funny, and fascinating creatures who provide us with eggs for breakfast, baking, and Easter time. :)
In short, this is my absolute favorite book about chickens. :) I have three pet hens that provide the family with fresh eggs (and lots of entertainment with their antics), and this book reflects their personalities and behavior really well. I'm going to try to find an extra copy for some of the neighbor kids who stop by to visit my three ladies every day.
