Summary
From the time he is hatched, Little Rooster learns lessons of life from his father and the other barnyard birds at Grandpa Goose's funeral, Crow's wedding, and a Christmas celebration.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Every bird who has a feather
Must learn to live
To live together

After baby rooster takes his first steppity-step-step out of the eggshell, he has so much to discover. There's Grandpa Goose's funeral and Bald-headed Buzzard dunking himself in the river, hoping for some feathers. Not to mention Crow's big wedding and a Christmas party with presents and good wishes for everyone. Life in the barnyard sure is more than just steppity-step-strut-strutting around!

National Book Award winner Joyce Carol Thomas brings us five high-spirited and playful tales that signify the important events in life: birth, death, baptism, marriage, and of course, rejoicing. Full of whimsical characters, The Bowlegged Rooster is a celebration of life's discoveries and turning points.
