Counting Chickens by Polly AlakijaTobi has a hen, and his friends each have their own animals, too. The other animals give birth to their babies: one calf, two lambs, three kids, four kittens, five puppies and six piglets. But Tobi's hen sits on the seven eggs she laid, waiting ...and waiting ...and waiting. At last, the eggs hatch. Now Tobi has a brood of seven beautiful chicks. And, by the following year, he has more chickens than he can count. Can you help Tobi count his chickens?
'A lesson in patience, this story book also supports the numeracy curriculum. Days of the week, the passage of time, counting to fifty and ordinal numbers are all integral to the story but could be used as a springboard for more focussed work on any of these areas. Supported by detailed, gentle illustrations there is much to talk about.'
'Move over 'Handa's Hen'... the story's fusion of universal appeal with authentic local flavour surely set up Counting Chickens to become a pre-school classic.'
'A stunning and dramatic counting book.'
'A great way to help young children learn their numbers and have fun counting.'
