Summary from in Jacket: While Farmer Brown sleeps; some of the animals who live on the farm go on a fishing expedition.
First Three sentences: “1 farmer sleeping. 2 feet creeping. 3 buckets piled high.
Why I love it: This counting book is especially cute in that the bare rhyming text tells an adorable farm story. Without waking the farmer all the animals carefully put the ten fish from his beloved aquarium back in the creek/pond/river. The humor just naturally flows. The illustrations showing the part of the story that can’t be told makes it especially funny. I think the preschooler set will laugh their heads off at this book.
