- This book teaches kids about acceptance, diversity, and community!
In this beautiful and simple book, hens and their chicks are living safe and secure in their coop—or at least it seems that way. They are happy with life as it is.
Until the day the capybaras appear.
To the hens, the capybaras are too big, too wet, and too hairy. But it’s hunting season, and the capybaras need somewhere safe to hide. So, the hens say they can stay, but they have to follow the rules. Can they?
As the days pass, minds begin to change and new possibilities appear. Will the hens finally accept the capybaras for who they are?
This delightful story, with a surprise twist ending, teaches the importance of caring for each other, no matter our differences.
