BeakSpeak 5: Cajun French & Paris Connection
A Crawfish Boil leads to a lesson on the French War and the migration of the Acadian people who settled in south Louisiana and became known as the Cajuns. This led the chickens on a field trip to New Orleans, to partake in some famous Cajun cuisine, enjoy a bayou festival and practice their newly learned French vocabulary.
Later, with a formal invitation to Paris for a very special family event, Peggy decides to bring the BeakSpeak group with her. They explore the grand city, the famous food and the historical sites with some chicken hi-jinks of course.
This action-packed story is full of history, dissension, celebration and of course, the French Connection.
