“The Josefina story quilt” by Eleanor Coerr was another great book in the Grandparents unit.
It tells the story of a young girl in the 19th century whose family sets off on a covered wagon train to California. Many things must be left behind but Faith's mom gives her dad "that special look" and he allows her to bring along her pet hen.
It resonated with me because as I child I fell in love with the chickens we had and have always been fond of them for some reason.
A great read :-)
