I love this one for teaching dialogue and point of view as the hens think the peacock has the easiest job, and the peacock think the hens have it easy. It doesn't take long before they realize they each have an important place on the farm, and you just really shouldn't judge or assume.
This text is a terrific mentor text for teaching opinion writing. We love how there is evidence to support different points of view and in the end the characters consider changing their opinions. A big thanks to Deb Brady for telling us about this book!ages
