Giveaway! Chickens! Illustrated Chicken Breeds A to Z Book Review

I am so excited to share with you this adorable book by Sarah Rosedahl.

Chickens! Illustrated Chicken Breeds A to Z

The book is just as it sounds. Each page represents a different letter of the alphabet and a chicken breed beginning with that letter. Sarah includes a sentence or two of information about the breed and a charming illustration. The chickens are fun, but created with attention to detail that represents the breed completely.

This book belongs on every chicken keeper's coffee table. It's a great conversation piece and would make a great gift!

Her use of the alphabet introduces breeds that are not commonly seen by backyard keepers. For example: 
Q for Quechua
U for Utrerana
V for Vorwerk 

Three things I love about this book:

1. It's fun! You get a bit of knowledge about each breed paired with an adorable illustration. I love thumbing through it, re-reading the origins, the descriptions and the introduction of unique breeds.

2. It's whimsical, but it's accurate. I love the style of art that she uses to depict each breed. It's a consistent style throughout the book that represents the breeds in a fun way but at the same time, shows the character and uniqueness of each chicken.

3. I love that there is a chicken breed for every letter of the alphabet! It further points to the fact that chickens are such a widely diversified species and that much more interesting!

Sarah left the software industry after 30 years to live on a farm in Vermont. She raises chickens and creates art inspred by nature and her farmyard flock. To learn more about Sarah's artwork and writing, or to purchase a copy of her book visit her website at:
