I had no idea this was being hailed as an instant classic by Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Common Sense Media.
But that makes perfect sense because this is a really cute book!
And it’s got sort of a cute story to go along with it:
So…our girls’ Grandfather (my father-in-law) is…an ardent environmental and labor protestor.
You know, the guys and gals who march and picket, holding signs and chanting things like “Hell no, we won’t go!”
Yupper, that’s Grandpa.
And actually, I admire that about him. It’s good to stand for something and stick to your morals.
So, he actually brought this book back from his trip to Paris United Nations Conference Summit this past year…where he protested.
And I’m glad he did because: “Cows that type! Hens on strike!”
Man! This book has some clever little rhyming couplets.
“I prefer the elegiac couplet, but it’s cool”
And even cooler: through the barnyard strike documented in the book, we learn quite a important lessons:
1) You don’t have to live with unreasonable measures
2) You have the right to protest, if you’re being treated unfairly
3) Compromise is a beautiful thing
4) Your actions may inspire others, which can make everyone happier….eventually.
I don’t know about you, but these are definitely some of the lessons that I’d like my kids to learn.
