    Review: The children's book Three Hens and a Peacock will be sure to entertain pre-school through lower elementary classes. I would recommend this book to ages 4-10. It is a very colorful, fun to read book.

    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.

    DISCLOSURE: A complimentary copy was given to us by Peachtree Publishers in exchange for our honest review. Opinions expressed are solely those of the reviewer.

    Another day on the Tucker's farm. The dog is snoozing on the porch, the hens are laying eggs and the cows are chewing their cud. That is until a truck passing by the farm has a crate fall off the bed of the truck cracking it open as it hits the ground and a peacock stumbles out of the crate.

    The peacock makes himself at home on the Tucker's farm but the he is at a lose as to what he is suppose to do on a farm.

    We all have talents or skills that are useful to our existence. What could the peacock do to be useful on a farm? So far, the three hens think the only thing he is good at is screaming and strutting his feathers. What good is the screaming and strutting? I know do you?
    Surely there is some way he can be useful on the farm.

    What makes you an asset at your home, school or job? We should all be thankful for what God has given us and put it to good use. Do you have a talent or skill? What is it?

    I really enjoy this book it is an good example as to the fact God has put every creature on this earth with a purpose. This book will open the child's imagination to see that the prissy peacock really was a benefit to the farm.

    The illustrations took the author's words and painted the perfect characters and scenery to complete the story for children of all ages to enjoy. I know I enjoyed Three Hens and a Peacock and will be sharing it with all my grandchildren.

    Disclosure
    I received a copy of this book from Peachtree Publisher for review. I was in no way compensated for this review. It was my own opinion.
