Summary: Rody loved chickens. When he worked in the kibbutz chicken house, he sang so loudly that everyone began to think the chicken house must be the place to work. So Rody was moved to the laundry and Bracha took over the poultry. Can the chickens find a way to bring Rody back to them? Full-color illustrations. (Amazon.com)
Review: Most of you don't know this... but Mr. Johnson used to raise chickens when I was younger. I love chickens (so does my wife). This is a wonderful picture book and although it's called the Chicken Man, it's really about Rody and how he approaches the world and makes each day wonderful. He works hard and loves something about everything he does. He reminds me a lot like the character Pollyana from the series of novels by that name. Rody makes the world better by finding joy in the world. May we do the same.
