Children's Chicken Library

While Christmas shopping in the bookstore recently, it occurred to me that I gravitate towards chicken-themed books- shocking, right? My daughters already have quite a few chicken related children's books and I thought I'd share some of our favorites with you. Some are still in print, others were found treasures at yard sales or library book sales, but whenever possible, I have provided links to the books in the event you find one (or all) that are library must-haves of a child you love or the chicken-loving child in you.

Children's Chicken Library- favorite children's books
From the moment Penny, Polly, and Molly hatch from their eggs, the whole farm knows they are truly tough chicks. They wrestle worms, rope roosters, and are often found under the hood of the tractor. All the other animals and even the farmer himself tell Mama Hen to make her chicks good. "They are good!" Mama Hen replies. But could her chicks be too loud, too independent, and too tough? Lively language and bold illustrations capture all the fun and humor of this delightfully different farmyard romp that's also a resounding endorsement for letting girls be girls (even if they're loud and tough and like to play with tractors.) Ages 4-8
Tough Chicks
Ronnie the Rooster wakes up the animals on Sleepydale Farm. Children will love searching for Ronnie as he sneaks around the farm, and will delight in the surprise on the faces of the large pop-up characters as their sleep is so rudely interrupted! Ages 3-5
Cock-a-doodle Boo!
Cock-a-doodle Boo!
Buck Buck is the Smith family's pet, but she refuses to behave like a normal chicken. How she wears out the Smiths' patience and finally redeems herself makes a satisfying conclusion.  Ages 6-8
Buck Buck The Chicken
One morning Hen wakes up and finds a gigantic egg in her nest. Whose ege can it be? Here's a hint, Hen--it doesn't belong to that wily Fox! Ages 4-6
 Big Egg
One stormy night, a lost and lonely owl walks into a farmyard looking for a place to sleep. After a restful night in the henhouse, Owl wakes to discover that the hens want him to leave. They're looking for a rooster, not an owl! How will Owl convince his new friends that he should stay? Ages 4 & up
Cock-A-Doodle-Hooooooo!
The Chicken and the Dog is a tale of  two urban chickens, Crimson and Clover, their friend, Sean the Dog and their fight against a gang of neighborhood raccoons.

Percy the Perfectly Imperfect Chicken
“Two birds of a feather, a chick and her dad, lived by the shore, in a radical pad. A legend in surfing, Chick’s dad ruled the Roost. Chick’s dream was to learn every move he produced.” So begins the story of a little chick and her dad who take to the beach so she can finally learn how to surf. At first Chick’s mood is foul as she struggles through some gnarly waters, but soon she is catching waves on her own board and even doing righteous tricks, just like her rad dad! Filled with cool surf lingo, this sweet rhyming picture book is perfect for summer at the beach and for celebrating the love between a father and a daughter. Ages 3-7
Surfer Chick

 A wacky new Easter version of the classic "There Was an Old Lady" song! This time, the hungry old lady swallows a chick, some straw, an egg, some candy, a basket, and a bow!

  151. fun books! btw, thank you for writing about supplemental lighting. since the cold weather and sunlight changes our chickens went from laying 6 eggs a day to 2-3. such a bummer. i installed some Christmas lights yesterday and set a timer for 3 am this morning to wake the girls up. here's hoping to increased egg production! thank you so much for all the information you provide on this blog!

    These are all great books, our favorite is, "The Secret Chicken Club" by George Shannon. My girls loved it as it had a very silly part in it where the rooster goes to the store to by chicken noodle soup and on his way he passes some goats who ask him where he is going, which he explain that it's soup for your brains, but the goats were like it's soup made with chickens!
