Book Review: Let's Hatch Chicks!: A Day-by-Day Chick Hatching Guide for Kids by Lisa Steele

Let's Hatch Chicks!: A Day-by-Day Chick Hatching Guide for Kids by Lisa Steele is a children's non fiction book about how a chicken lays, cares for, and hatches an egg.What’s going on inside that egg? At the heart of this book is the answer to that question; it's a guide for the action-packed weeks while a chick grows. However, there’s so much more to learn! Whether you're interested in where eggs come from, what feathers are for, or what chicks eat, this book has the answers. Learn how to hold and feed your new chick as well!

Let's Hatch Chicks!: A Day-by-Day Chick Hatching Guide for Kids is a very informative book about everything chicken and egg related. I like that the book had very cute, but accurate illustrations, and that I learned more than a few things about chickens as I read it. I like that while the book is very kids friendly, it at no point feels like it is talking down to younger readers. It gives the information in a straightforward manner, with no condescending or childish tone in it. I think this would be a great book to share as a family, or in a classroom, for anyone raising chickens or pondering adding them to their lives. I liked the fun facts included on many pages, and the amount of detail that is given to the growth of the chick, before and after it is hatched. I found the information to be well balanced between chicks hatched and raised by its mother, and those hatched and raised by people using incubators and brooders. The glossary and information about the author (and her chickens) at the end of the book was a nice touch as well.
