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
