The kids have always been fascinated with animals, and our library always included animal stories. Once we got our ducks and chickens, I could see that they were eager to start learning more about farms and farm animals. Once your child has the basic knowledge of farm animals, it’s always fun to expand on what they know with a few more in-depth books.

My thoughts:

Millie’s Chickens is an adorable children’s book full of brightly colored drawings of Millie and her pet chickens. Through the story, your child will learn more about Millie’s chickens and their lives with her. You will learn more about what they eat, the color eggs they lay, and how the chicks hatch as you watch Millie take care of them. Your child will become familiar with new words as they learn about the hopper that holds the grit they eat to strengthen the shells of the eggs they lay.

The story also emphasizes that the chickens need the sunshine, healthy food and to roam free to be healthy and happy. At the end of the book is a section that will teach your child more about caring for chickens, the different breeds mentioned in the story, the basics of chicken anatomy, and the parts of an egg. There is even a section with tips for preparing four different types of egg dishes for your child to make with you.
