Description
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.
