Synopsis

Mother Duck wants to show off her twelve newly hatched ducklings, so she parades them up the hill, across the road, and along the edge of the pasture. But when Mother Duck finally turns around, eight of her little ducklings are gone! She counts up, and she counts down, but no matter how she counts, her missing ducklings are not there. Can Farmer Donald help her find them?
