In my opinion this book is great for younger students! There are many reasons why I liked this book so much. The first is because of the illustrations, the colors are so bright and draw the students in. In my ELL internship I read this book to a little boy that was in pre-k and all he could talk about was all the colors in the book. Along with the colors the characters are well developed, the story takes place on a farm but non of the humans really play a part in the story line. It is all about the animals and the jobs they have on the farm. This books main idea is to show students an example of problem solving. In the book the animals decide to switch jobs and it does not turn out the way they want so in the end they have to return to their old jobs. ( )

This book is about how the lives of three hens was changed when a peacock came to town. The hens try to find ways to get back the limelight from the peacock. I will use this book to talk about dialogue and the use of quotation marks.

I thought this was a very cute book for a few reasons. First of all, I thought the illustrations were exciting and depicted the animals emotions extremely well. I also thought the characters were well-developed and that each one was comical yet necessary for the story. I thought that the language was light-hearted yet intentional, which is a great thing for beginning readers. The central theme of this book is presented through the hens and the peacock, who try to switch jobs but realize that each is better suited for their original position and that everyone has a purpose.

25 months - This is a fun read and has a good message. Everyone has their place and an important job in life even if we seem a bit different. ( )

I liked this book at first, but by the end I decided I did not like it. One reason I liked this book was because it shows children that some people are made a certain way for a certain reason. For example, the peacock's job was to look pretty and the chickens' job was to lay eggs. When they switched roles, the outcome was not what they expected it to be. Another reason I liked this book was the illustrations. I thought the colors were vivid and made the story pop. The facial expressions of the animals were funny to look at too. I didn't like this book because I felt the ending was confusing and just ended in a weird way. It ended how the book started but it was hard to understand what happen. I was left with some questions that needed clarifying and if I am having that issue, I feel like kids will too. ( )
