A simple counting book for children between the ages of one and four, this board book invites the young reader to count up to five while watching a family of baby chicks forage for food.

One little chick spies a fat, wiggly worm while another sees a spotted, crawly bug. The other three chicks see a butterfly, strawberries, and even a large, long, shiny trout. But none of those tasty morsels seem to satisfy the brood.

Then Mama Hen comes up with the perfect solution for her hungry crew. She takes them into the corn patch and tells them to 'scratch, scratch, scratch' and then peck the tasty scraps they find.

When they are finished Mama Hen says, 'Let's not make a peep! It's time to snuggle and cuddle and sleep.'

Counting books are always popular with preschoolers and this one offers bright, vibrant illustrations and a bouncing, rhymed text that will appeal to any child.
