Peep's story shows how everyone's happiness increases when chickens help each other. This story is important because each generation believes that the upcoming one is economically illiterate - (that they don't understand how the "real world" works). This belief is true...until the younger generation learns about economic systems.
The Chickenomics Project is an attempt to increase economic literacy by illustrating basic principles through a story about a group of chickens that learn how to improve their situation through interdependence. Parents that read it with their children will find opportunities to relate real-world experiences to situations presented in the story. It is hoped that the "ideas for parents" materials at the end of the book will also lead to more discussion.
