Praise For…

"Starts off as a silly counting tale about animals trying to grab a cookie—and then morphs into something even better. It will charm preschool and early elementary students..." —Jessica Cassity, Digital SLP

"When a cookie is dropped in the farmyard, all of the animals are alert with desire. Two mice begin the tussle as three roosters rush to stake their claim. Four hens join the fray as five cats create a commotion. Six dogs and seven sheep battle with eight turkeys and nine pigs. The screeching and squabbling is enormous, until ten hawks begin circling overhead. The farm animals quickly reverse order. The nine pigs protect the eight turkeys; the turkeys tend the sheep; and so it continues as the animals unite in their single cause. The mice use a slingshot to catapult the cookie into the air and the hawks fly away. The farm animals are one big pile of friends. This innovative counting book will be intriguing to youngsters who are beginning to learn their numbers. The cartoonlike illustrations add to the humor and provide objects for the children to count as the story progresses." - Children's Literature
