305.”The Featherless Chicken” by Chih-Yuan Chen


Chickens have feathers by nature, but one chicken was an exception. He was born without the fluffy outfit and his bare skin caused him a lot of trouble. He was cold and felt ugly. He wanted to go boating with four beautiful, feathered chickens, but they wouldn’t mingle with the featherless one. However, they did find him intriguing when the naked bird approached the pretty group again, dressed in a coat of mud and leaves. And when all the birds got soaking wet during the boating, the featherless bird finally saw that he was not worse or uglier than the rest.

What’s the moral from this lively story? By the end of the day, we are all the same. We all have our fears and dreams, we all need to eat and drink, sleep and shower… We all have a bad hair day and get a pimple every now and then. So feathered or featherless, let’s teach our children to always be proud of themselves.

A smart little tale. Well written. Humorous and deep. Original pictures. Very engaging and memorable.
