Chickens lay eggs. Many end up in the grocery store where people buy them to eat, many other eggs develop into hens or roosters. Discover how eggs develop into chickens.

Also available in Spanish "La gallina" (ISBN: 0-8368-2996-4) Part of the "Life Cycles" series. 2001, Gareth Stevens Publishing, $17.95. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
Children's Literature
In clear photographs and workaday prose, this short book introduces hens, roosters and baby chicks, focusing on a white leghorn. Text covers brooding, the fact that hens lay eggs fertilized or not, and the development and hatching of baby chicks. It mentions but does not dwell on mating. Vocabulary is defined in context and rounded up in a glossary but not highlighted in the text. Two to five sentences per page make this readable for able second grade readers, but the book informs without much involvement. A seven-photo, double page spread invites children to put the pictures in order according to the life cycle of a chicken, a good interactive idea with answers given on the next page. "A Springboards into Science" series book. 1999, Gareth Stevens, $19.93. Ages 5 to 7. Reviewer: Susan Hepler
