|It's all at the expense of the farmer's once-bountiful apple tree, of course, but beloved author-artist Pat Hutchins (and the farmer's wife) have a perfectly wonderful time in this exuberant counting book that counts down from 10 to 1. And for those who have mastered counting? Why, yippee, fiddle-dee-fee! There's a barnyard full of animals sounds just begging to be loudly mooed, neighed, oinked, and quacked!|
From the Publisher:
Ten red apples hanging on a tree. Yippee, fiddle-dee-fee! But they are not there for long. Horse, cow, donkey, pig, hen, and the other farm animals each eat one. "Save one for me," calls the farmer. But what about the farmer's wife?
Count on Pat Hutchins to solve the problem happily. And count?the red apples before they are all gone!
This counting book, with bold color illustrations throughout, invites readers to learn how to count as they visit some barnyard animals.
"A welcome addition to the counting-book genre, Hutchin's playful tale is an edifying and energetic romp." May 1, 2000
