Penelope the Peacock


Paris Goodyear Brown created this powerful story to answer the questions of a latency-age child conceived during the time his mother was being trafficked. This therapeutic story takes children on a journey with Penelope the Peacock, a bird who grows up in a hard place and is sold to a Feather Farm by her parents. Her life is full of hardships and just when you think she has lost all hope, she finds it again. For children who are conceived during rape the inquiry “Who is my daddy?” is answered beautifully through metaphor that will be meaningful to children of all ages.
