Introduce children to the life cycle of chickens from egg, to hatching, and beyond with Let's Hatch Chicks!. Author Lisa Steele, of Fresh Eggs Daily, shows the entire process in kid friendly terms.

In this book you’ll meet Violet, a plucky and fun-loving chicken. Violet has an exciting secret to share with you: she’s ready to be a mom! 
 
Join Violet as she keeps her eggs warm and protects them from danger. See what happens each week as the chick grows inside the egg. And when the new chicks arrive, that's when the fun begins again! These baby chickens need a lot of help to get along in the big world. They will need food, a new home, and sometimes a little help from mama hen.

Author Lisa Steele presents the exciting world of chickens in an easy-to-understand, kid friendly way with action-packed illustrations, a useful glossary, and fun chicken facts! Steele runs the very popular chicken-keeping blog, Fresh Eggs Daily, and also hosts a TV show on a PBS affiliate in Maine.

Lisa Steele is a fifth-generation chicken keeper who has been around chickens most of her life, so it’s no surprise she has made her name raising her own backyard flock and sharing her farming adventures. Lisa is also an aspiring herbalist and avid gardener who shares tips and advice on both her award-winning Fresh Eggs Daily blog and Facebook page of the same name. She holds a Maine Master Gardener certification and her popular website has been named one of Better Homes & Gardens Top Ten Gardening Blogs. 

A regular contributor to such publications as Backyard PoultryHobby Farm, and Chickens magazine, as well as HGTVGardens.com and BHG.com, Lisa has become the most trusted voice in natural chicken keeping. She has appeared on P. Allen Smith’s radio and television programs, various local programs, and is currently hosting her own "chicken lifestyle" television show on Maine's WPTX-TV. She is the author of Let's Hatch Chicks!Gardening with ChickensFresh Eggs Daily, and Duck Eggs Daily, and tours the country speaking and signing books at the Mother Earth News and Country Living fairs.

Lisa and her husband live on a small farm in Maine with a menagerie of chickens, ducks, dogs, and an indoor-outdoor barn cat. In her free time, she enjoys knitting socks, sipping herbal tea, and cooking (using fresh produce from the garden and fresh eggs from her coop).
