Something to Cluck About

March 19, 2015

Today is National Poultry Day. Do you know what that means? It’s time to quack, gobble, honk, and cluck because today ducks, turkeys, geese, and chickens are king. Make that Chicken a la King for me. Besides being a healthy alternative to other meat choices, those little peeps can be pretty darn cute.

Chicken is my poultry of choice. In no particular pecking order, I’ve listed some of my favorite picture, chapter, and middle-grade books starring chickens, of course.
