Description

 Go from 1 to 20, and look for chicks aplenty, in this cheerful read-along board book.

Parents' newest story hour pick is a seasoned favorite counting rhyme with an exciting twist. Rabbit needs to one, two, buckle her shoe and three, four, run out the door so she can help her neighbor Mommy Hen prepare a yummy surprise for the little pigs' birthday party. Meanwhile, Mommy Hen's four little chickes are playing hide and seek. Can you count to 20 with Rabbit and keep track of those sneaky chicks at the same time?

Between the four little chicks hiding on every page and the creative story-telling approach to a popular counting rhyme, there is a lot to love about this board book that is perfect for small hands. Combined with Jane Cabrera's signature eye-catching art style, learning to count has never been so much fun.

Jane Cabrera's Story Time celebrates children's best-loved read along nursery rhymes and songs. These interactive favorites are given a new twist by award-winning artist Jane Cabrera and feature her bold, bright, kid-friendly illustrations. Other titles in the series include Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush, If You're Happy and You Know It, and Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
