Overview

Chicken, Pig and Cow love everything about their home... everything except Dog.

Pig, Chicken and Cow love the warm and cozy barn that Girl made for them out of Popsicle™ sticks. Even though Girl forgot to make a door, the three toy animals think their home is perfect. The only thing that isn't perfect is Dog. He lives outside, but his drool makes it feel as if it's raining in the barn.

One day, Pig and Chicken decide to go exploring, leaving Cow behind. Before long, Cow hears a drooly, snorty sort of sound, followed by a crash as the barn tips over. Dog is very big, and Cow is terrified -- but she really has nothing to fear. All Dog wants to do is play, as Pig and Chicken discover during a daring rescue. Dog becomes a friend. Best of all, now that two sticks have been knocked free, their barn is indeed perfect -- front door and all.

With her trademark economy of words and expressive characters, Ruth Ohi has created a refreshing toddler-friendly story about making friends.

. . . a great story about the simple joys of friendship that young children will be able to understand and enjoy.
— Carrie Ann
Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
A girl makes a cozy, Popsicle-stick barn for her clay chicken, pig, and cow. Outside lives a real dog. Although everything seems perfect, one day Chicken, Pig, and Cow want to go exploring. Since Girl had made no door to the barn, Chicken and Pig climb out, but Cow cannot manage and is left behind. To her surprise, Dog knocks the barn over and wraps himself around her. Cow faints. When Chicken and Pig return, they persuade Dog to get up off Cow and chase a ball. Now that he has made them a door, they have made a friend. There is not much of a story here, but Ohi's animal characters are both charming toys and simultaneously anthropomorphically human. The big, hairy brown dog is a fine foil for the simply shaped mini-adventurers. Transparent watercolors contribute an emotional delicacy to make this fantasy come to life.

PreS

Chicken, Pig, and Cow live in a barn constructed of Popsicle sticks. The toy barn would be just right if the child who built it had not neglected to include a door and roof. Most days, this does not matter because the toys are taken outside. However, one day the animals wait and wait but Girl doesn't come. Working together, two of the clay animals successfully escape while Cow stays behind. She is not alone for long, because huge Dog, who often rains drool down into the roofless barn, has other plans. In the end the three toy animals make a friend and their barn gets a door. The simple text and expressive watercolors, set on a white background, are perfect for sharing with a group. This charming look at what toys and pets are up to when children aren't around is a solid choice for young animal lovers.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
