9780375869891: The Chicken Problem

The very first picture book based on the math-themed, Emmy Award-winning PBS cartoon, Peg+Cat!

The Peg+Cat show intertwines math and fun for maximum kid-appeal. In their very first picture book, Left-brained Peg and her right-brained pal, Cat, are enjoying a picnic on the farm with Pig. However, when someone leaves the chicken coop open and the chicks run amuck, it's up to Peg and Cat to use their math skills to help solve their poultry predicament. With humor, refreshingly original characters, and math problems that young readers will be clamoring to help solve, THE CHICKEN PROBLEM is an ideal addition to any home or classroom library. 

Praise for THE CHICKEN PROBLEM!

From Booklist:

Peg likes solving problems. Her cat, Cat, likes helping her. And both of them like pie. One day when they visit Pig at the farm, they happen to have a pie, which Peg divides. But—Big Problem!—there’s one small piece left. So Cat opens the door to the chicken coop and brings out a chickie to eat the pie. Problem solved? Nope. Big Problem! The door’s unlatched, and soon 100 chickens are leaping and somersaulting around the yard. Although it’s billed as a math-concept book, there’s relatively little here about counting (most of the addition comes from counting chickens or from the simple addition used to indicate page numbers). That aspect could have been dropped because this is plenty cute on its own. The effort put into the design—graph paper backgrounds, typewriter lettering, and pages overflowing with tiny, identical chicks—makes for a real eye-catcher. The ebullient pictures match a text that’s as funny as it is fowl. Kids can count away, but mostly they’ll be giggling. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
