Book Review – Henrietta’s Guide to Caring For Chickens

IMG_2481

An interesting children’s book on chicken keeping that covers the basics in a fun, engaging way. Both of my children read it and retained some of the basics. I would recommend this book to parents and grandparents to give to kids who are interested in chickens or who will be keeping chickens at home.

We were planning on keeping a small flock of chickens and this book helped to engage and educate the kids. Just like edible gardening, with chicken keeping it is important for the kids to be part of the activity.

Both of my kids did their own book reviews as well. Read on for their take.
