Are You Ready to Hatch an Unusual Chicken? by Kelly Jones
As with the first book, a small dose of fantasy (teleporting and fire-breathing chickens) aside, this is a story about a girl working hard to achieve her goals. Packed full of useful and interesting instructions about chicken care, this delightful story will entice readers to learn more about chickens. Gently delivered messages about tolerance and forgiveness add substance. Copious illustrations throughout provide the icing on the cake. Fun, educational, affirming, and pretty to flip through -- what more could you ask of a middle reader?
