The Lovereading4Kids comment

Smiling, cheerful, independent, no wonder toddlers everywhere love Maisy, and she makes all early learning experiences fun and exciting. This story sees her helping Mummy Hen find her ten chicks, who are hiding around the farm. There are flaps on each page to be opened – a stable door, tractor cabin, tree branches – and each one conceals a chick, plus friend. Gradually, ten chicks are found, counted and put to bed. There are lots of counting books but the illustration style - bold black outlines and bright colours on snowy white backgrounds - makes this feels fresh and appealing and you can always rely on Lucy Cousins for a surprise or two (is that an elephant in the flower bed?)! ~ Andrea Reece
