A review and giveaway of TillysNest.com 's A Kid's Guide to Keeping Chickens

You guys. I am so excited to finally get my hands on this book (and clearly from the photo above, I wasn’t the only one)! The wonderful Melissa Caughey of TillysNest.com has just released her very first book: A Kid’s Guide to Keeping Chickens, and I couldn’t be more thrilled for her! It’s a perfect addition to my chicken-keeping library. Furthermore, I get to give a copy away to one of you lucky readers as part of Melissa’s blog book tour (details on entering the giveaway at the end of this post)! And there are so many chances to win–the blog tour stops at different blogs for the next few weeks, so check in with the schedule at TillysNest.com to find out where you can enter every day!

Fortunately for me, my copy arrived just in time for a weekend sleepover with the nephews, and they were more than happy to help me review it.

The nephews spend a little quality time reading A Kid’s Guide to Keeping Chickens with the poultry.

This is such a fun book for kids! Not only filled with lots of fabulous information and photos on the ins and outs of raising chickens, it’s also full of the most adorable, colorful illustrations that really kept the nephews (and chickens) thoroughly entertained.

The audience is smitten.

What’s more, the book is peppered with kid-friendly science experiments, clever craft projects, yummy egg recipes, and real-life kids-keeping-chickens stories. There’s even a tear-out wall poster!

My six-year-old nephew knew right away that he wanted to try out some crafts, so he invited over our neighbor buddies and they got to work making treasure boxes out of egg cartons. (As seen on pg. 116)

Bedazzling egg cartons is serious business.

WHAT?! Chickens take baths in the dirt? But how do they get clean if they are just getting dirty? Six-year-old mind blown.
