"Three Hens and a Peacock" by Lester L.Laminac and Illustrated by Henry Cole
My K4 students especially liked the bright colored peacock and the page that the peacock got stuck in a doorway. The girls in my class liked the page where the hens dressed up in pretty jewelry as they tried to get attention instead of doing their job in the hen house.
My K4 class thought the story had a good ending because the hens and the peacocks went back to doing their jobs. The hens went back to laying eggs and the peacock helped bring customers to the farm by showing off its pretty feathers. (rev. M.Hicks, K4 Lead Teacher)
Illustrator Henry Cole has given such personality to these birds. It is hilariously entertaining. The story told in short, easy to understand yet fully descriptive prose is delightful.
