The Chickens Are Coming!
Author: Barbara Samuels
Winston and Sophie live in a big city. When they see a sign for chickens that need a home, Mommy says they don’t need to live in the country to raise chickens. And what could be better—pets that lay eggs! So they prepare the coop, tell their friends, and soon enough, the chickens arrive. But it seems that no matter what the children try, these chickens don’t want to be pets, and they refuse to lay eggs. Can anything change their minds? Will the chickens ever feel at home?
With bright, funny illustrations and an informative note from author Barbara Samuels, The Chickens are Coming! is a story about doing something new, learning to be patient, and welcoming new members into the family.
