The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is the most delightful story about change. It’s about how one person (or in this case a young boy and a chicken) can make a difference. Although written in the style of a picture book it’s definitely a book to be shared between parent and child or for a child to read alone aged 7 upwards. It’s a story of how reaching out to help someone with a small loan (in this instance enough for a boy in Ghana to buy a chicken) can have a big impact. Indeed the book is multi layered for throughout the full bleed illustrations there’s some short and simple text for the younger child alongside much longer text which provides much more meaning to the whole story. Brilliantly executed and definitely a real favourite of ours. What’s particularly lovely is that the story is based on a real person in Ghana whose real life story is also included in this book alongside a glossary of some Ghanan terms and what you the reader can do to help the poor in countries less fortunate than ourselves.

One Hen by Katie Smith Milway
Uses the story of a young boy in an African village to introduce children to sustainable development. This title brings to life Kojo's progress from one hen to his own farm. It tells the story of a real-life Kojo.
'It is heartening to see a text that neither romanticises rural Africa nor depicts its people as victims dependent on Western intervention. The colourful illustrations are joyous. Highly recommended.' The Bookseller
