When I was young, I used to go visit my grandmother s farm in the Sierra foothills She had chickens, and crops It was not a large farm Only five acres But we learned how to grow food, and pluck chickens, and even how to milk the neighbors cow The area that Sophia finds herself in, when she and her family move to her great uncle s farm, reminds me of that area And it is true that it was very white And I can imagine how she would feel slightly out of place and worry about racism.There are covert and overt instances of racism, and Sophie deals with them well, with the help of her cousin Lupe.This is not the main focus of the book though I am glad that it is there Kids love to see themselves in books, and this is good for them, to be seen in books.Mainly, though, this is a book about chickens This is a book about a young girl who is new to the area, who is raising these chickens This is a book about a girl raising unusual chickens.We were introduced to these unusual chickens in the first book, and in this second book, we get to meet two other types Along the way, we learn about chickens, and how to hatch them I love how this is woven into the story My hens hatched their own chicks, so I didn t have to turn eggs, but I know about having to watch the baby chicks, when I first started raising chickens.You know a book is good when you miss it when you are done That is how it is with this book There is a hint that there will be another book, and I am thoroughly looking forward to it.Sophie has a good sense of humor, and thinks things through, and tries to do what is right A good, strong female protagonist.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review. We started raising chickens when our daughter was just a baby, so she has grown up with a yard of feathered friends She enjoys their eggs and the song they sing when the lay an egg , chicken jokes, and collecting the feathers when they fall out.Last year we came across the children s middle grade book Unusual Chickens for the Exceptional Poultry Farmer about 12 year old Sophie Brown who has just moved with her parents from L.A to a farm they inherit from a great uncle Jim Sophie finds a small flock of hens on the farm and learns rather quickly that these are no ordinary chickens they have powers Sophie is both determined and resourceful as she learns about chickens and how to care for them and handle their unusual abilities.When I found the sequel on NetGalley recently, I had to request an ARC to find out what happens next in Sophie s adventure In Are You Ready to Hatch an Unusual Chicken , Sophie is settling in at Blackbird Farm and adding new magical chickens to her flock She has inherited Redwood Farm from Agnes, an exceptional poultry farmer who raised and sold unusual chickens for many years.To continue Agnes s work with unusual chickens, Sophie is sent a batch of eggs to hatch all by herself in an incubator and she s excited to learn what their super powers will be Since the new flock cannot be added to her existing flock because of the pecking order , Sophie needs to prepare Redwood Farm for its first new flock of chickens in ages With her friends and her cousin Lupe who has recently moved in to attend a nearby college they clean up Redwood Farm with the help of their community.It isn t long after the eggs have hatched that Sophie finds one chicken has an alarming power that could be dangerous While navigating her new school, new and exisiting friendships, Sophie also has to learn how to care for baby chicks, keep up with her chicken chores and Redwood Farm, and face her first inspection with the Unusual Poultry Committee This was another fun and quirky novel in this children s middle grade series told in letters e mails, lists, and quizzes I enjoy the chicken facts and the information included brief but accurate descriptions on molting, incubating hatching, etc and my daughter loves the funny powers the chickens have Young readers can also learn a great deal from Sophie, who is enthusiastic, determined, and caring I look forward to seeing what happens next at Blackbird and Redwood Farms Thanks to Knopf Books for Young Readers and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review Are You Ready to Hatch an Unusual Chicken is scheduled for release on November 6, 2018.For full reviews, visit www.rootsandreads.wordpress.com Are there going to be of this series I love how the book has a good balance of humor and emotion It is enough to cry at some parts, but always a good laugh next to it This book always will be one of my favorites in humor.
