Chicken, Pig and Cow's First Fight by Ruth Ohi
* I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

This is a book about three friends going through their first fight. They are all playing in the city of blocks when one of the friends knocks them all down. He leaves the other's to clean up his mess but in the end, he is forgiven.

The three toys are best friends and always get along until they have their first big fight. They each have their own personalities that make them unique. Pig makes a mess and runs away scared to hide. His friends are left to clean up the mess so that dog isn't blamed. He didn't like his friends mad at him and apologized.

This is a cute book that teaches children that even friends can have disagreements; you always have to say "I'm sorry" when you are wrong. The story has a wonderful message supported by beautiful illustrations. Young children will love it.

Lilly and I give Chicken, Pig and Cow's First Fight 3½ Stars.

Format: Paperback
Chicken, Pig and Cow are back! In this adorable book, the three toy friends get into their very first fight, and oh what a fight it is. Chicken, Pig and Cow are playing in a building-block city made by Girl and are having a lot of fun when Pig gets too rambunctious and ruins Chicken's beautiful statue. Pig gets really upset and blames Chicken and Chicken gets mad right back! What will the three friends do?! Can they still be friends?

Ruth Ohi's colorful illustrations make the story fun to read! This short book, perfect for ages 3+, teaches readers about how friends sometimes fight because they see things differently. Readers will learn about working together and saying "I'm sorry." Parents can use this book as a teaching tool to demonstrate how to work through the emotions we feel when we fight.
