This book teaches a great lesson. Just be yourself! Know what you do well and don't try to be someone else. That never works. Do what you do and do it well.
The illustrations in this books are hilarious. The peacock is proud of how everyone is interested in him, but this really rankles the hens.
They decide they were there first so they should be able to show off and they send the peacock off to the hen house to sit on eggs. As you can tell by the picture, showing off really isn't the hen's forte.
Three Hens and a Peacock When life on the Tucker farm is disrupted by the arrival of a peacock, whose shrieking and strutting bring many welcome visitors, the hens complain that they are doing all of the work until the hound suggests a trade.
