Book Review: Shutting the Chooks in by Libby Gleeson - Reviewed by (02 Apr 2013)

I love children's stories which are simple and don't try and complicate matters too much. Shutting the Chooks in is an excellent book which children will feel absorbed in. The story is simple yet it empowers a young hero which children will be able to relate to.

A young boy has the sole responsibility of locking up all the chickens at the end of night, however one night when counting the childen's, he discovers that one chicken is missing. From hear follows his search to find that chicken before predators. The illustrations are simple and the effect is effective, a cute kids book.
