Count with Maisy, cheep, cheep, cheep!

Walker Books
ISBN: 9781406357318           RRP: $19.95

Maisy Mouse and Mummy Hen search around the farmyard for 10 lost chickens. There are all sorts of places that chickens could hide in this lift-the-flap story: the stable, the tractor, the wheelbarrow and more. One by one, Maisy and Mummy gather them in until all 10 are safe and sound in the hen house. Even then, Maisy makes one more check to be sure all are ac-counted for. The illustrations are a visual treat, done in gloriously bright colours with bold black outlines. What a wonderful book to learn how to read and count!
