In Chickens in My Backyard, Savannah narrates her experience of raising chickens in Tucson, Arizona. Her family lives in the city, and they don't own a farm, but they do have a chicken coop in their backyard, where they care for three chickens. Savannah's story will defy expectations for many students, who think of chickens living on a farm in green pastures, and they will be fascinated to learn how a girl their age cares for and manages these animals. Family photographs invite students to enter Savannah's world.
