“One, two, buckle my shoe. Three, four, shut the door. . . . . Nine, ten, big fat hen!” “Baker uses an imaginative array of acrylic colors for his hens—greens, purples, and pinks to contrast with the warm, yellow straw background. There are lots of things to count, such as sticks, eggs, chicks, and hens. A fine choice for toddler story hours.”—School Library Journal
