In a nutshell: This book is about a little girl named Peg who wants to have a pie picnic with a pig and a cat. Unfortunately, she has an extra piece of pie and has to find someone to eat it. In the process, she encounters a chicken problem. This is one of my favorites. It’s freakin’ adorable. The pictures look hand drawn by a fifth-grader on graph paper. And it’s a clever story about math. Math?!

The page numbers allowed me to introduce the concept of equations as they read: 5+1=6; 6+1=7, etc. There are clever little mathematical signs hidden in the illustrations. And frankly, we’re into chickens. Preferably organic, grass-fed, egg-laying chickens, but that’s a previous story.

Families can talk about: What does equals mean? And how to keep your cool when you’re totally freaking out. Most importantly, families can continue flipping back repeatedly to page 8+1=9 to re-quote “Chickens standing on each other’s heads! Chickens doing the chicken dance! Chickens bending over and wiggling their bottoms in the air!”

I’d highly recommend this book, but beware, you soon may also be battling The Bum-Bum Problem.

We love Peg + Cat and this book is cute BUT . . . it lacks the educational aspect of the show. In the tv episode of this show, Peg and Cat talk about proportions (with the pie and wheelbarrows) and count the chickens by 10s. This book doesn't touch on either. It is still a cute book but I am super disappointed. The author really missed an opportunity to introduce some great math topics, shame.

My three year old daughter started watching "Peg + Cat" on PBS so it was only natural that I would buy this book for her since it was the one that started it all. The story is very entertaining and the pictures are cute with vibrant colors. It's quickly become one of her favorites and I can see where this would be a great way to introduce math to your little one.

This is the book that started it all. My daughter loves Peg + Cat and all things associated with it. She is only 3, so I think this book is still a little bit beyond her, but she still loves leafing through the pages and commenting on how this picture or that picture was in a certain episode of the show. Plus, I like being able to show her that a TV show started as a book first :-)

Love the show... now we love the book! My almost 2 year old loves Peg and her quirky cat Cat. Some people don't like that the math involved isn't very advanced or structured but I think this book strikes the right balance for really little ones by introducing the concepts without making it all about the lesson. Learning should be fun and it most assuredly is with Peg + Cat.

What a fantastic book. As an Illustrator, I really love the style and my kids adore this book. It's currently the favorite in our house. I get a good laugh out of the acknowledgments in the back. It's great that they added some special touches like that. One of the best kids books I have seen in a long long time.

My son adores Peg + Cat. This is the first book they wrote and it's a little different in speech patterns etc than the show. Quite enjoyable and we read t every night. My favorite chicken is the one who sticks his tush in the air!
Great book for any Peg+Cat fan. Follows along perfectly with The Chicken problem episode. Illustrations are just like the PBS show and it does a great job of teaching early math skills to young children. My 3 year old loves it and the layout is great for following the math concepts.
