Horning’s Chicks! is an ideal tool to show young children not only the basics of raising fuzzy, wee chicks to downy, adult chickens in one’s own backyard, but also how they can work together with their parents in ensuring that their new backyard pets lead a happy, healthy and safe life. The accompanying illustrations by Goodell gave the story warmth and vibrancy.
