A Home For Chicky

A Book about Cultural Diversity and Tolerance

By: Myriam C. Barthole

About the Book

Poor Chicky! All he wants is for someone to love and care for him! And just when he thinks he has that in Pat, his new owner, he soon realizes Pat doesn’t have time to care for him.

                So Chicky leaves on a mission to find someone who will do just that. He meets a cow, a dog, and a duck, who all think they can’t help him because he’s so different. But after meeting a wise old owl, they find their differences are just what make them great.

                A Home for Chicky celebrates cultural diversity and the different traits we all have that make us very special.
