This book has cute, cartoonish illustrations that will engage young readers. Readers of all ages will appreciate the message of working together and playing to one’s strengths that is emphasized in this book. After all, a male peacock cannot lay eggs, and hens aren’t likely to attract a lot of attention, but, working together, they can get people to stop driving long enough to enjoy some produce and fresh eggs on the farm!
I have used this book as a read-aloud with my kindergarten and 1st grade students. I’d also like to share the book with my school guidance counselor and P.E. teachers. This is a great book to teach the concept of teamwork.
