    City Chickens By Christine Heppermann


    Tired of children s chicken books that depict these complex animals as merely meat or egg producing machines, and or lie about the ways in which the vast majority of chickens today are raised Get ready to crow about City Chickens Urban homesteading becomes urban rescue in this brightly illustrated, nicely presented book Mary and Bert are a married couple who keep chickens in their backyard not as food producers, but as rescued friends Their lucky feathered charges come from a variety of sources [...]

    I predicted in my reading resolution post this year that I would read books about bravery and chickens possibly the same book City Chickens is that book an inspiring story about one couple s efforts to rescue injured and abandoned chickens and find them good, loving homes.

    Okay, I m biased, I took most of the pictures and my wife wrote it Still think it s a great book Mary and Bert do amazing work at Chicken Run Rescue.

    City Chickens is a delightful read, full of everything that great nonfiction needs The pages are chock full of facts, of course, but the text also contains a variety of stories to capture your heart Heppermann has put covered much than the life of chickens in the city, and in so doing, she has created a book as much about chickens as it is about why people dedicate their life to causes in which they believe The photos bring humor and flavor into the story, and the pages pop with color and with [...]

    I would never have believed that there are individuals who would be willing to rescue chickens This one was a fascinating read.

    This is not just chicken shelter but also taking actions in nonfiction So engaging

    Interesting High three Maybe four we ll see how kids react to it I did not know chickens had such personalities.

    A lovely book that makes you empathetic, the flow of the text is a little awkward a times, but the story is full of hope and love which overcomes some of these flaws.

    An interesting book on how Chicken Rescue Run is helping shelters care and find homes for the abandoned chickens in the Minneapolis area.I wish their was information on how people can raise and take care of chickens.

    It is true that many chickens are raised solely for their meat, or eggs In factories and classrooms, chickens are treated like items Chickens have feelings too, and should be treated with care.

    Since this book is written by a long time book reviewer for Horn Book, rest assured that she knows a thing or two about excellence in children s nonfiction This endearing and unique title about a chicken rescue organization in downtown Minneapolis will appeal to a broad range of ages, and its layout is fresh and fun And read with care, because the photographs are so fabulous a chicken eating spaghetti that you will want your own pet chicken The stories of abuse and laying conditions at factory f [...]

    Just read this book as my token non fiction of the month and I did enjoy it Basically, I wanted to learn about city dwellers who are raising chickens on their roof or in their garden as a fresh source of eggs But, this book is about a rescue home for the city chickens that escape, the peeps brought home from elem school kids each spring and the cock fighting roosters that are saved and near death After reading it, it makes it much, much harder to eat a chicken nugget, that s for sure These resc [...]

    Meet Mary and Bert They run the Chicken Run Rescue in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and if you think they rescue dogs or cats, guess again The couple has opened their backyard and their home to chickens Many are abandoned, some are rescued from illegal animal fighting but however they get to Mary and Bert, they need help and are deeply loved upon arrival Grab this book for a heart warming true tale with a cast of crazy birds named Henrietta, Ranger and Billiam Great pictures make this informative non [...]

    Interesting story about couple that rescues chickens I was happy to see the author s plea for empathy toward the plight of roosters But suggesting that classes hatching eggs as a learning experience was a bad idea because it supported the throw away mentality people might have regarding chickens made me think that maybe she had begun to pontificate rather than inform the reader Chicken lovers will enjoy the story but should know that the book leans toward a persuasive piece rather than an infor [...]

    As and people keep chickens in the city, what happens to lost or abandoned chickens will become of an issue This book describes one rescue organization in Minneapolis, run by a dedicated wife and husband who have turned their backyard into a safe haven for unwanted chickens Lots of lovely photos of chickens as pets this may make some kids uneasy about chickens as food, so parents may need to be prepared to answer some tough questions about why we eat some animals but not others.

    The author states that chickens are the most abused animal in the U.S My husband, who has taught agricultural ethics and the use and abuse of farm animals, agrees.This lovely little book beautiful graphic arrangement of colors, words and pictures and talks about the loving care that Mary and Bert give to rescue chickens at the Chicken Run Rescue in Minneapolist surprisingly the author eventually succumbed to the charm of chickens and now has two rescues of her own.For all those who want to ensur [...]

    Juvenile non fiction about a chicken rescue shelter Great photographs and some fun anecdotes about the rescues and about individual chickens and their quirks But may miss its intended audience, since those looking for information on raising chickens in the city will be disappointed, and those looking for stories about rescue animals may not know to look here.

    I thought this was going to be about the trend of urban dwellers owning backyard chickens, but it was about a chicken rescue adoption organization in Minneapolis It was interesting but different than what I expected.

    This new nonfiction book is well written and has wonderful photos As an aspiring chicken owner, I am all excited about the topic I enjoyed reading about Mary and Bert, and the many others who have fallen in love with chickens and made it their life work to rescue many needy birds

    A neat story about a passionate woman who starts a rescue organization for chickens It reads like a feature story in a newspaper or magazine, but with LOTS of great pictures and sidenotes Good for educational purposes or for an enjoyable, quick read.

    Definitely one of my favorites of the year So many schools hatch chicks, but what happens to those cute little guys and girls when they get too big for the classroom Thsi book offers a delightful sneak peek into a chicken refuge and shares some of the owner s adventures.

    Elizabeth Ferry
    So, what I took away from this book is that I will no longer purchase anything other than cage free eggs and free range chicken Poor little guys Can t go so far as to go vegetarian but the critters should not live their lives so miserably.

    Don t let the title mislead you This is a book about an animal shelter for chickens,, not a book about how to raise chickens.

    Who knew chickens could be so cute

    Sweet, touching story of an urban animal sanctuary.

    Kids really enjoyed this one.

    Cute, for fans of Tuesday tucks me in

    This book is all about a shelter in Minnesota for.Chickens Interesting information about alternatives for school hatching projects.
