Chicken, Pig, Cow's First Fight

Even best friends can have a fight.
Chicken, Pig, and Cow have always gotten along well-until the day Girl builds a big city out of blocks. Thinking something is missing, Chicken makes a leaf statue. Now the city is perfect.

Pig loves zipping and zooming around the city. Chicken warns him to be careful, but Pig is having too much fun to listen. Then the inevitable happens: Pig zooms right into Chicken's statue, destroying it. Chicken is furious! Pig's attempts to fix the statue only make matters worse. In the end, he demolishes the entire city. Realizing what a mess he's made, Pig hides while Chicken, Cow, and Dog rebuild the city. After a nap, Pig feels better and returns to apologize to his friends. They forgive him and invite him to join them in putting the finishing touches on the city.

(C's Review) This book is cute for a little kid like my sister, it is the story of being good friends and being good friends is very important. Sometimes I have been a bad friend and have to help clean things up too, but mostly I am like cow. I try to be a good friend and play nicely with my friends!

(Mom's thoughts) This book is a very great lesson, the line "You are a good friend who was in a bad mood", is a very moving and telling line in this book. The animals are all playing together when one of their moods changes the day. Luckily the friends are able to help one another over come the bad mood and mend fences! It is really appropriate for the age group this book is set for to learn lessons of friendship.I would recommend this for all small kids, as learning friendship lessons is so important!

  1. Dear Mother & Daughter Reading Team,
    Thanks for this lovely review. Cow is pleased that C identifies with her and would recommend the book to her little sister. All three barnyard friends are doing excited somersaults! Best wishes, Ruth
