The Christmas Chicken
By: Nora A. Shipe
About the Book
There is something special about all animals and they each have their own personality. Nora A. Shipe has reflected this concept in her story The Christmas Chicken. The main character, Peepo, is a very special chicken. Her story shows how being special is a gift and that everyone – man or animal – should be treated with respect.
The author hopes that this and future books will inspire children of all ages to realize that everyone is different and have many great qualities. She also writes in hopes that we should never leave any stone unturned and enjoy life by living in the moment every day.
