Love is superior, family is mighty, and we were put here, not for ourselves, but for each other. These are the core values that were passed down to me from my grandfather. Don’t chase the chickens because one day one might just chase you back, beer is more than just a breakfast drink, and do what you want, not what you’re told… these were also some things of value that were passed down to me from Grandpa.
Growing up just down the hill from my grandfather and his chickens taught me more about life than anything that I could’ve learned in school (had I paid attention). Learning how to stand up for myself, to lend a helping hand, to nurture, and protect the things I love, are just a few of the lessons that I learned while crossing that grassy path between his house and mine.
Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop is a book about love, family, youth, maturing, and all the learning that happens in between. It is a powerful, humorous, insightful, playful, and philosophical narrative about perspective and the lessons that I have learned growing up just as ornery as my ornery grandfather and his precious chickens.
Memoirs with a family theme are my favorite type of books to read. I adore memoirs because they give the reader insight into a person’s fascinating life. In particular, I love memoirs with family themes because the reader is whisked away on a journey that is full of many poignant moments and if the author of such a biography is brilliantly descriptive, the reader will feel immersed within the family and will learn the same life lessons as such author did. Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop written by the extraordinary Jacob Paul Patchen is just this type of read; it is an incredibly powerful memoir that whisks the reader away on a journey full of love, humor, and poignancy and should not be missed. The reader, thanks to the author’s impeccable descriptions, will feel as if they are right there so already I would have to implore you lovely readers to have a read of Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop!
Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop is a remarkable memoir that will take its readers on a moving and memorable journey told by Jacob Paul Patchen, the narrator, and author of this book. In his book, he shares his upbringing with his grandfather and how his grandfather influenced him in many ways. Jacob is very honest about the fact that growing up so close to his grandfather, had a massive impact on his values, morals, and so much more as Jacob’s grandfather would share life lessons with Jacob and shape him into the man he is today and this book lovers is the premise of this incredible book!

Jacob Paul Patchen is an incredible man who I admire so much, there is much I admire about Jacob, but one of the core attributes I admire about him is the fact that he has told his story. Literature is an art form, and it is there for stories to be told and shared, and stories like Jacob’s should definitely be shared.
Not only is Jacob a wonderful man for sharing his story, but he is also exceptional for his beautiful literature laced throughout his memoir. Memoirs only work in my opinion if the writing is honest as well as descriptive and Life Lessons from Grandpa and His Chicken Coop is most certainly this. Jacob has described his story perfectly, so much so that the reader will be able to feel as if they are right there, with Jacob and his grandfather.
