Ever since I attended the PBS Annual Meeting in Miami this past May, I’ve been excited about the launch of PEG + CAT (premiering October 7 on PBS KIDS). A rarity in educational programming, it’s a math show… with a female lead… that happens to play music. That’s a trifecta of awesome for this music-slinging, daughter-raising Dad that was never too fond of math. I want my girls to dig the numeric subject, and PEG + CAT appears to be a piece to that puzzle. One early taste of that world is a book called THE CHICKEN PROBLEM (Random House) by series creators Jennifer Oxley and Billy Aronson, and to celebrate the show, PBS KIDS and The Rock Father are giving YOU a chance to win a copy for your little one(s)… along with some cool, PBS KIDS pencils!
PEG + CAT: The Chicken Problem
Full of humor, refreshingly original characters, and math problems that young readers will be clamoring to help solve, The Chicken Problem is an ideal addition to the home or classroom. Left-brained Peg and her right-brained pal, Cat, are enjoying a picnic on the farm with Pig. However, when someone leaves the chicken coop open and the chicks run-a-muck, it’s up to Peg and Cat to use their math skills to help solve their poultry predicament
