Chicken, Pig, Cow's First Fight by Ruth Ohi

Chicken, Pig, and Cow are best friends. They're such good friends that they've never had a fight! When they find an elaborate block city, they all get excited. Chicken builds a statue, but Pig - who's a bit too excited and starts zipping and zooming around - accidentally ruins it. Then things go from bad to worse! How can these three friends make everything okay again?

One of the things that I love about this book is how quickly everything gets out of hand. No one intends to make the others angry, but it happens, and they have different opinions about the situation. Even better, they resolve it in a healthy way that acknowledges bad behaviour and remorse while forgiving and moving on. The bright illustrations and fun characters make this an easy pick to read with kids.
