Reading About Chickens

The girls and I have done a lot of non-fiction reading pertaining to chickens so I decided to scour our bookshelves in hopes of finding a fiction book that would also tell us about chickens. Lo and behold the things I can find in our book collection! We've never read this one before and I can't even remember where I picked it up but what a good book so far! We've just started reading it (about a fifth of the way in) but the kids are really loving it. This is what they had to say about it at the dinner table (*spoiler alert):

McKayla: 'My favourite part of the book is when the little red hen tumbles down the ramp! That was soooo funny the way they described it.'

Braelyn: 'I don't have a favourite part, it is too sad when the little red hen loses all her toes. I do like the dog though, the way he crawls on the ground like an army man'

Emerson then yells: 'ME talk toooo' ....she was getting angry that no one was asking her what she thought. So I then proceeded to ask her what she liked about the book....I have no idea what she answered but she went on and on for a good minute telling us about something!

    I love seeing what you guys are up to these days! You're definitely living my chicken-raising dream...maybe we can get around to it next year? (aside from bylaws, our other main concern is that we would need an electric fence to keep bears, etc. away, sigh).
    I, too, can't wait to get these plants out of my house and into the ground. But I'm waiting on soil delivery, not weather--don't know what's worse...
