The latest book in the Tales of Little Overhill series is now available.  The new book, Tale of the Proud Chicken is a fun read for kids that also gives a moral.  It has a good plot that kids can benefit from, learn from, and enjoy as well.  The images are beautiful, and having animals as the main characters is fun for children.

pic4I first read this to my son, then sent it in with him to his school.  His class really enjoyed the book, and they thought that the chicken was funny and silly.  They liked the chicken’s adventures, and were relived when he went back home.  Being a bunch of 7 year olds, they all pointed out that he wasn’t really a proud chicken, but a proud rooster- which is true, little rats, lol.  After we read the story, we tried to guess what Bible story The Proud Chicken was most like.


In two weeks, it will be my turn to teach the Sunday School class, and I will see how the 5 year old’s like The Proud Chicken.  If they like it as much as they did the last Little Overhill story, I’m sure it will be a hit.

Through fun and engaging storytelling, Theo teaches children God’s word and how they ought to live in light of it.

Theo’s Tale of the Proud Chicken is a humorous retelling of The Parable of the Prodigal Son. In a tale that both children and adults will enjoy, Chadwick the rooster learns that pride goes before a fall.  He also learns that no matter how far we may drift from God, the love of our heavenly Father will always embrace and restore the repentant sinner.

You can buy your own copy for $13  at , as well as any of the other products from the Theo collection.
