It’s amazing the bond that can form between humans and animals. The book Rocky Hen, A Life Story by Rosalie Rowe and Nancy Ruiz Depuy beautifully illustrates that relationship.
It’s especially refreshing to see a special bond with an animal that is not the traditional dog or cat. Chickens are not your typical pet, though they are gaining popularity through the backyard chicken movement. This book is a great example of how animals, no matter the species, can hold a treasured place in our hearts and be the center of an important relationship.
“Backyard chickens are especially popular today. This story describes a special bond between human and animal, Rosalie Rowe and Rockie Hen, and how that bond is nurtured, through both humorous and touching experiences. It is also a life-cycle story, appreciating beginnings as well as endings, honoring and remembering.” – Rosalie Rowe
