Our Humble Helpers

Description:  Through conversations with his three young nephews, Uncle Paul shares fascinating details about the very animals on which we depend, including the cock and the hen, the horse, the pig, the cow, the sheep, the cat, the dog, the duck, the pigeon, and the turkey. He frequently calls on experiences of his own or historical anecdotes to illustrate his points. An engaging read for all ages.
