This is a great resource for the beginner chicken owner or for someone who is wanting to get their children more involved it the backyard chicken lifestyle. It has tons of beautiful pictures and illustrations. It even comes with a poster that you can fill out to tell all about the chickens you own. That was a big hit with my girls. I think they showed everyone that came over for weeks after they got the book.
We will keep it on hand and likely lend it to friends. I imagine this book would serve 6-10 year olds very well.
Top reviews from other countries
Its American so a lot of the references are from the US and Americanised. And some slight differences in chicken breeds etc. But nothing major like other books I read reviews about. My duaghter is just turned 6 and can't read lots of it yet, but great illustrations and good ideas.
Very basic information - so as advertised written for children
I had hoped it would be a little more informative and didn’t realise it was written by an American author
The only negative is that this book is American and therefore the recipes in it are in American measurements (cups).
