My grandson, recently turned 4 years old, received this book as a gift. I'm not sure which one of us likes it better - "grandma" or grandson. Gwen, the hen, and Red Rooster are about to become parents. Gwen continues to be surprised, and Red is so excited, as the eggs slowly hatch. The story provides a great tool for learning to count as the eggs slowly hatch, Red keeps running back for more worms, and hands his coins to Pinky, the Worm World proprietor. Included are lessons of caring which are very sweet.
The illustrations, design and colors are beautiful! I love this artist's technique.
Grandparents! Buy this book for your grandchildren, you'll have as much fun as they do.
