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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Chicken Problem I have now purchased 7 of The Chicken Problem books for the children in my life. A wonderful story of Peg + Cat solving problems using math & shapes. PBS based a lovely cartoon on this book, beginning last October. It is showing every weekday @ 9:00 a.m. & 6:00 p.m. The show is doing so well, that it is already being sold all over the world. I highly recommend this book, as well as the show for children age 2-5.
