Canadian Materials - Claire Perrin
Ruth Ohi has created another satisfying story about true friendship with the animal characters she created in 2008 in Chicken, Pig, Cow... The theme of being unique is presented with beautiful simplicity in this book. Children will relate to the purple problem by identifying something that makes them unique or different. Ohi's message is clear: everyone is different, but it is these differences that make us who we are... Ohi's watercolour illustrations support the text and add humour. In fact, the story tells itself through the pictures, making it a great book for preschoolers to read independently. Children will appreciate the funny details in the illustrations which are never mentioned in the story. The vocabulary and sentence structure are simple enough for preschoolers to understand but still contain warmth and humour.... Chicken, Pig, Cow and the Purple Problem surpasses the first two books in this series because of its important messages about friendship and self-acceptance.
Highly Recommended.
