Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Full-color photographs on crisp white pages feature chickens. Some show hens, others roosters and even chicks. Young readers will be able to follow the easy to read text at the bottom of each page that explains where chickens live and describes their characteristics. Kids learn that, while chickens have feathers and wings, they really do not fly like other birds. The major body parts are pointed out, and there are close-up photographs of a chicken's beak, with one showing how it picks up food. A hen sitting on a nest of eggs and farm kids collecting eggs are found on the next page. There is no mention of the need for fertilization to produce a chick, so kids who see the baby chicks hatching from eggs may think that every egg might contain one. The two pages of chicken facts are useful and might have clarified that issue. There is a five word picture glossary and an index in this attractive book that teaches some basic facts and one that may raise additional questions. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
