Bawk, bawk, bawk, baaaawk! Calling all chicken keepers with kid's! This is your lucky day!
I'm so pleased to be a part of this book review blog tour!
Melissa Caughey of the popular blog Tilly's Nest and Storey Publishing are giving away one copy of her fantabulous new book,
A Kid's Guide to Keeping Chickens to one lucky Dandelion House reader!
I wish a book like this had been around when we began our chicken keeping adventures 8 years ago. At the time our children were 8 and 10 years old. We got the caring for chickens basics covered but Melissa takes backyard chicken keeping to a whole nuther level. I just know our kids would have loved digging into the chapter on Chicken Crafts where they could have learned how to make an egg carton treasure box and how to blow out and egg and decorate it. Or how to sketch a chicken to hang on the frig or in the family art gallery. We could have used a few pointers on taming chickens too which is also covered in this book.
Mom's, Dad's and Grandparents will love the chapter on creating a chicken-friendly garden too! What better way to get your kids involved in gardening than creating safe pecking grounds for the family flock? And, if you're brand new to keeping chickens Melissa covers everything you need to know about creating a healthy home and proper care and handling of your new chicks!
This book covers it all with adorable kid-friendly illustrations alongside beautiful photography featuring kids and chickens together. Just as it should be!
Enter to win Melissa Caughey's, A Kids Guide to KEEPING CHICKENS!
I'll announce the winner a week from today!
