CHICKEN

“Mom, the big ducks in the yard said I’m a chicken, but you told me I’m a duck!”   Freddie cried.

“Albert, why are the big ducks calling your little brother a chicken?”

“Because he is afraid to go near the cows.”

“Freddie, the big ducks mean you are afraid, not that you are a real chicken!”

“But mom, the cows are so much bigger than me!”

“Just because an animal is big does not necessarily mean it is dangerous and you do not have to be afraid of the cows.”

  2. Gee, this is the second story I’ve read that garners children’s books. But a moral lesson for us all. Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.
