This is a lovely way of introducing fiction and non fiction. The book has been reformatted and made simpler than the copy I recall when teaching, which contained facts alongside the story and was a larger size. Lots of follow up ideas could come from this musically and with movement, and easter/spring
Lovely illustrations.

5.0 out of 5 stars another Anita Jeram classic--absolutely loved it! great for teaching kids about animals 2 Sept. 2008
By N. Ferguson R. - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has absolutely beautiful. incredibly endearing illustrations by Anita Jeram (illustrator for the blockbuster bestseller about a daddy and child rabbit called "Guess How Much I Love You"). The hardcover edition's cover illustration truly doesn't represent the super-cute and detailed drawings inside-- if they replaced the cover with one of the inside illustrations I think this book would sell many, many more copies. (The paperback edition has an illustration which is a little bit more representative, but still not as cute as what's inside!)

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our Favorite Children's Book about Chickens 24 Aug. 2011
By MLM - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
We borrowed and purchased many books in preparation for raising our own chickens. Although technically fiction, this one has been our favorite. The illustrations are wonderful--very sweet and also very much capturing the mannerisms and realistic appearance of chickens. This book is very informative and in particular is the book I always reference regarding the ever-important kid question: how do I know if there's a chick growing in this egg?
