Saturday is the last chick to hatch and has all the spunk and curiosity that can exist in a chick. His days consist of exploring and doing things outside the box to discover who he is meant to be. When he finally hears the rooster crow he figures out what he is supposed to do and lets out his own voice.
This would be a good book to illustrate that everyone is different. And that you have to try many different things before you find what you are good at.
Potential Problems: None
Personal Response: The moral of the story is to do what is possible, and I felt that other stories could teach that better.
I would use this book in a pre-k or kindergarten setting to teach "days of the week". What I like most about this book is that it's organized where students can make a list or name the things that the chick decides to do each day. Good book for a sequencing lesson; students can organize the events and match it to the correct week day.
