Tobi has a hen, and his friends each have their own animals, too. The other animals give birth to their babies: one calf, two lambs, three kids, four kittens, five puppies, and six piglets. But Tobi’s hen sits on the seven eggs she laid, waiting . . . and waiting . . . and waiting. At last, the eggs hatch. Now Tobi has a brood of seven beautiful chicks. And, by the following year, he has more chickens than he can count. Young readers help Tobi count his chickens, learning to count up to 50 in this fun tale.
