Chicken to the rescue!
Chicken, Pig and Cow are very happy together in their barn, so not everyone is pleased when Horse arrives. Horse is clever and strong, but, as Chicken points out, he also takes up a lot of space.
When Chicken suggests they play a game of hide-and-seek, Horse merrily trots off. But when he disappears, a frantic search ensues. Horse is nowhere to be found -- until Chicken finally spots him inside the fishbowl. Feeling guilty, Chicken jumps in to save him, only to realize that Horse is actually outside the bowl. So who will save Chicken? All ends well when Pig, Cow and Horse -- with the help of Dog -- team up to rescue their friend.
The adorable toy characters Chicken, Pig and Cow (and real-life Dog) continue to delight young children with their charming adventures and subtle messages about friendship, acceptance and working together.
Too subtle to be used as a new sibling book, this title works best as a friendship story.--Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library"School Library Journal" (01/01/2011)
A perfect read for preschoolers who can learn from Chicken and Horse how to be better friends. Highly Recommended. When Horse arrives to the barn, he cramps the style of the residents -- or so Chicken says. Chicken, Pig, Cow, Horse Around by Ruth Ohi will delight preschoolers and help teach them the value of friendship. Ohi captures the complexity of emotions inherent in relationships...She does this with such sensitivity that her stories never feel moralistic or pedantic. Highly recommended.
The watercolor illustrations are drawn on lots of white space, making the expressive yellow chicken, pink pig, and spotted cow stand out against the pages. Too subtle to be used as a new sibling book, this title works best as a friendship story.--Ieva Bates, Ann Arbor District Library"School Library Journal" (01/01/2011)
