In this book, Henrietta the Chicken reveals how readers should go about choosing chickens, what supplies they will need, how to make a new chicken feel at home, and how to properly care for chickens, including feeding, exercising, and keeping a chicken coop clean. Text is accompanied by clear, labeled photographs to further reinforce key concepts, and the use of an animal narrator also allows the book to be used to teach perspective.
