for Chicken, Pig, Cow by Ruth Ohi
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 PopsicleT 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.
