"A reassuring story about death in the natural world, thoughtfully designed and illustrated."
"The story presents the circle of life in a very comforting but realistic manner. The bright pictures do not mince matters: one shows the fox with the hen in his mouth but the next balances it with him curled up protectively in his den with the kits"
-Judith Constantinides for the School Library Journal
"A warm hug on a crisp morning, Sonya's Chickens is The Lion King's Circle of Life... minus the soaring orchestral arrangement."
"you’ll come for the elegant endpapers and distinctive art and stay for the powerful story"
