baby chicks

If you are getting ready to start a garden this year or have backyard chickens don't forget to stock up on some great non-fiction books for kids on these topics to make it a family affair and a great learning experience! For soon to be chicken owners we have the brand new book Hatching Chicks in Room 6 by Caroline Arnold which details step-by-adorable-step, a classroom's fun adventure in hatching chicks using an incubator. For more information on raising and keeping those adorable egg delivery systems you can check out A Kid's Guide to Keeping Chickens by Melissa Caughey. If you are going to have a garden this year and would like to involve some free child labor check out Planting Seeds by Kathryn Clay or The Ultimate Guide to Gardening by Lisa Amstutz. We have these and a plethora of other titles on these topics. Just ask at the Children's Question Desk! Happy peeping or seeding! --Rachel V.
