This delightful chapter book reminds young readers of the joys and complications of living in a family and in community. Daniel is enchanted by Peepers, one of the chicks that hatches in his classroom. He is even more delighted when he gets the chance to take Peepers home at the end of the school year. The other four classroom chickens also find a home at Daniel's house. What is a boy to do when he finds out something about Peepers that could put that chicken in jeopardy. Thus the Secret Chicken Society is formed to try and deal with the problem. What plans will they put in action? Will they work? You will have to read the book and find out. Highly recommended for classrooms with chicks in incubators as well as for chicken lovers all over. Reminiscent of Beverly Cleary and her iconic books about children and animals.
