Chickens In The Yard by Endreketta is an illustrated children’s book that is everything chicken. Annie’s yard is filled with them, and they not only rule the roost but the yard, the car, the porch, the deck, and everywhere else on the property! Sheltered in the coop at night and released outside during the day, they roam free, laying their eggs and living a chicken’s life to the fullest.
I’ve raised various breeds of chickens for years growing up, and I easily related to the pictures and stories of the free-ranging hens. Each chicken has a different personality and yes, some of the hens will hide their eggs to keep them safe from the daily gathering. This book reflects that aspect very well. A number of different varieties are represented in the beautiful artwork, showing each hen’s individuality. And speaking of art, it is well done, providing plentiful detail and bright colors, setting off each page.
This is a fun book to read with kids who are being introduced to chickens for the first time. It provides a realistic picture of what it takes to raise chickens, especially those that are free-range. You can’t corral ‘em like sheep or pigs, but they are tameable, and it’s obvious these fowls really captured the author’s heart. The book is easy to read, filled with personality, and captures the colorful daily lives of chickens. Chickens In The Yard by Endreketta is highly recommended for children and all who love farm animals.
