This book is already a favorite of my 2 year old great-grandson. The illustrations are so cute and it is a good teaching tool to teach them to count from 1-10. This book is perfect after watching real chickens hatch out of eggs in their incubator. It would be great for kids who don't have chickens to watch hatch.
TEN EGGS IN A NEST is a fun little counting book. Gwen the hen and Red Rooster are excited about becoming mother and father to their chicks that are soon to hatch. But, since it's bad luck to count your eggs before they hatch, Red has no idea how many chicks to expect. Each time Red runs to Worm World to pick up a worm for his new chick, he returns to find more have hatched. Kids will laugh at Red's never ending trips to Worm World and back count how many chicks await Red each time!
My grandson, recently turned 4 years old, received this book as a gift. I'm not sure which one of us likes it better - "grandma" or grandson. Gwen, the hen, and Red Rooster are about to become parents. Gwen continues to be surprised, and Red is so excited, as the eggs slowly hatch. The story provides a great tool for learning to count as the eggs slowly hatch, Red keeps running back for more worms, and hands his coins to Pinky, the Worm World proprietor. Included are lessons of caring which are very sweet.
The illustrations, design and colors are beautiful! I love this artist's technique.
Grandparents! Buy this book for your grandchildren, you'll have as much fun as they do.
I liked Michael Fleming's illustrations in Twinky the Dinky Dog so much that I had to get this book for my nephew as well! The story is heartwarming, with the dad/rooster very involved and excited about the birth of his chicks. And, the drawings are super cute -- great colors and I love how each chick has it's own look & personality. My nephew loves it, and we've read it many many times!
