    One thought on “Sonya's Chickens”

    1. I have some mixed thoughts about this book.I really like the nurturing aspect of this book. Sonya loved and cared for her baby chicks and they grew up and began laying eggs of their own. She cared for them like any mother cares for her children. I also liked that the family was multiracial. (You don't often see that in books that aren't about family or race.) An incident causes Sonya to learn about the food chain. While a part of life, it makes this book more appropriate for older children, not [...]

    2. I saw this on *Netgalley and was excited by both the cover and the description. It sounded like it was going to be a good read.Sonya's papa gives her three baby chickens. Sonya does her best to feed and care for all three. But one night loud noises come from the chicken coop. When Sonya goes out to investigate she finds one of her chickens missing.Ok the illustrations in this are so rich and amazing. The deep colors and drawing styles remind me a bit of Van Gogh. It was just a wonderful piece of [...]

    3. Sonya raises chickens and despite her excellent care, one night they are disturbed by a predator and she loses one. Her parents help her understand the loss and how all creatures on the earth are tasked with providing for their loved ones as best as they can, which helps her make peace with the event and move forward.I really like the way life and death in the animal kingdom was handled here, especially how it involved looking at the situation from multiple perspectives as a way of understanding [...]

    4. Circle of life in the wild at a kid-friendly level - Sonya has the responsibility of raising her family's chickens and she does everything she can to make sure they are happy and have a full belly and a warm place to sleep. Until a (view spoiler)[fox breaks in one night and kills one of her chickens. Sonya's dad explains to her that the fox is a creature who has a life searching for food for its babies and it didn't know or care that taking the hen from Sonya would impact her in this way. That s [...]

    5. The illustrations drew me to pick up this book. Sonya is given three baby chicks to care for, which she lovingly does, as they grow into adults. When one is killed by a fox, her dad explains to her that the fox only did so to feed his own children. This is a great explanation of the life cycle and predator/prey without being too preachy, and includes a discussion-worthy "celebration" of the dead chicken's life. Gentle ending - an egg hatches (another jumping off point for cycle of life discussio [...]

    6. Sonya learns about the circle of life caring for chickens on her family farm. Vibrant and detailed illustrations especially in the clothes and other fabrics- "Sonya's sweaters" is a spinoff I would definitely read. This book deals with the painful subject of losing a loved one in a comforting and gentle way. I love that it assumes the best intentions of those who do us wrong :"What might seem unfair to you might make sense to a fox" a good lesson for us all.

    7. What a sweet book! I absolutely loved this story and believe the author and illustrator, Phoebe Wahl, does an excellent job at utilizing this book to showcase the importance of empathy. When one of Sonya’s chickens was taken by a fox, her father encouraged her to think about why the fox took her chicken. The fox had a family, and he likely took the fox to bring a big meal home to his kits. While reading this book, I felt empathetic for Sonya because I knew she loved all of her chickens; howeve [...]

    8. Sonya lives with her family on their farm. Her papa brings home three fluffy chicks one day and gives them to Sonya. He tells her she will be the one to take care of them. She is proud to be their mama. They quickly grew into hens and one laid her first egg. One night, she heard a squawking outside and she saw that one chicken was missing. She cried to her papa and asked, "What took her? A fox? Did it kill her? It's not FAIR!" Her papa explains that what seems unfair to Sonya might make sense to [...]

    9. This story is about Sonja who is given the responsibility of taking care of new chickens. After some time caring for them, one of them is taken by a fox so then Sonja is to learn about how animals live and how life works in nature. This book is good in terms of the lesson it teaches to young readers.The media used in this book is water color and the detail achieved by this makes the art look like it stands out. The art in each page gives a soft yet crisp identity to each of the characters shown. [...]

    10. What an understated treasure of a book. This book has everything:-A multiracial family without it ever being part of the "genre" or theme of the greater story; these characters are allowed to simply be-Lovely illustrations-The love and care of a girl for her chickens-The love and care of a father as he helps his grieving daughter over the loss of a beloved chicken, and who paints a large picture of why the fox did it, explaining the circle of life to her in a way that resonates with a young chil [...]

    11. This is a very beautiful book that gently discusses the life cycles of animals and the natural world. The artwork is just gorgeous and the story is very touching. Sonya takes care of her 3 chickens with her family and raises them from eggs. One night a fox gets into the barn where the chickens were and Sonya has to come to terms with the fact that one of her chickens is never coming back. Her father comforts her by telling her the fox may have taken the chicken to feed babies of their own. Soon [...]

    12. This is a gentle introduction to the circle-of-life for the young elementary/older preschool age crowd. Sonya and her parents all model loving, nurturing behavior. Her father's compassion and patience is beautiful. I also enjoyed that the family is multi-racial even when that's not what the story is about. One thing to consider: the idea of a fox eating Sonya's chickens may be a little much for a sensitive preschooler so consider your audience.

    13. The touching story of a little girl who raises 3 chickens, and takes her job very seriously. One night a fox comes into the pen and takes one of the chickens. We know Sonya is in a lot of pain, grieving over her lost chicken. Her father steps in to explain a few life lessons, that gives her (and us) a different perspective on the sad event.

    14. Dealing with a chicken's death by fox gracefully and with wisdom. Love the bright warm pictures of a biracial family too.

    15. Great story; lovely illustrations. Helps kids think about loss, death, and the circle of life using chickens as an example--much less scary than using people.Kirkus Review says: "A father’s thoughtful explanation provides a helpful perspective for a child’s lossA reassuring story about death in the natural world, thoughtfully designed and illustrated."[image error]

    16. A girl cares for chickensuntil one gets taken away. I loved how her dady's story helped her feel compassion for the fox and his family. Nice book about seeing 2 perspectives.

    17. I liked it--it handled a sensitive subject-that of losing a beloved pet to a predator, with sweetness and sensitivity. Bonus: the couple and their children featured in this book are biracial.

    18. Sonya was given three tiny chicks by her father. It was her job to take good care of them. At first, the chicks liked in the house in a cardboard box while Sonya’s parents fixed up the coop in the yard. Soon they grew into pullets and were living outside. They followed Sonya everywhere she went. She took good care of them, giving them food and water and cleaning out their coop. They grew into three large happy hens and started laying eggs. Then one night, Sonya was woken by squawking in the ch [...]

    19. This is a very calming and soothing book about death.As well as exploring the emotional side of loss, Sonya's Chickens is brave enough to acknowledge the beauty and necessity of death. The rustic warmth of the illustrations assures us that it is okay for things to die. Death facilitates life. Without death, there can never be anything new.Phoebe Wahl is one of my favorite illustrators and I'm very excited about her new book, Backyard Fairies, which comes out next month.

    20. The 2016 winner for the Ezra Jack Keats book award for best writing, _Sonya's Chickens_ is a sweet, heartbreaking book featuring a little girl who loves the three chickens she tends to - even when she looses one to a fox. The most moving passage is when the little girl's father tells her the following to soothe her: "The fox who took your chicken lives in the woods beyond the field," Sonya's papa said. "He works hard every day to find food to bring home to his babies. Most of the time he can fin [...]

    21. I knew I had to have a copy of this book just looking at the cover--the style and colour palette instantly reminded me of My Father's Dragon. I figured that, even if I didn't find the story interesting, the illustrations would be a treat to look at.And I wasn't wrong! Phoebe Wahl's art is full of vivid colours and an old-fashioned, painterly sensibility that gives motion to the figures she creates. The story is nice, too, of a little girl whose parents give her three chickens to raise--and a sma [...]

    22. After her father gives Sonya three chicks, she takes her responsibility for the fluffy creatures quite seriously. Lavishing affection on them and making sure to feed, water, and clean their boxes, she is a wonderful surrogate mother. Despite her care, a fox slips into the hen house and kills one of her beloved chickens. Sonya is understandably distraught, but her father explains that this is the way of nature. After all, the fox is also caring for its young, and the chicken has provided it and i [...]

    23. Sonya is excited when her father brings home 3 chicks. She raises them to adulthood, keeping them clean and fed. One night while investigating strange noises Sonya finds that one of her chickens has been taken by a fox. She is understandably heart broken. Her father explains why a fox might have taken her chicken. The next day the family holds a small ceremony to honor the chicken. Sonya returns to caring for her two remaining hens and is very excited when a small brown egg begins to hatch.From [...]

    24. What at first appears to be a sweet story about a little girl who raises and cares for three little chickens is in reality a lesson in the cruel realities of nature.When Sonya's father gives her three chicks to raise, Sonya responsibly cares for them, feeds them, and makes sure they are happy and healthy.But one night a fox gets into the henhouse and takes one of her chickens. Sonya's father then explains to her about how the fox had babies to feed, just like he feeds her and she fed her chicken [...]

    25. With lush illustrations produced in watercolor, collage, and colored pencil, Wahl tells a heartfelt story of a young girl learning about the interdependence of life in nature through the birth and death of the chickens in her care. Although there isn't much of a plot, the characters are authentic and the love for each other and for the world around them is evident. While the text is sparse, the illustrations are rich in imagery. The greens are dark and vibrant with life; a night time sky is remi [...]

    26. Very sweet book about a young girl who raises three chickens and experiences natural death (fox eats a chicken). Her father takes care to be tender with his daughter in her grief and tells her how the fox is also caring for his family and now the baby foxes have full bellies and will grow strong. They honor the chicken's death (and Sonya's grief) by having a graveside ceremony. The only problem with the book is that the two remaining hens somehow produce an egg that hatches and there's no rooste [...]

    27. In lovely watercolor and collage, Wahl tells the story of Sonia’s chickens from chicks to hens. Sonia is so caring and responsible, loving taking care and glorying in the first brown egg. I love when she holds that egg to her cheek and says “thank you”. Sadly, a fox gets into the coop, and Sonia finds one of her beloved chickens gone. The explanation by her father tells about the needs of the fox for his own children, just as Sonia cares for her chickens, and he cares for his family. It do [...]
