Michael Garland brings a clever collage technique to this bright, cheerful tale that incorporates counting and simple addition and subtraction. Ten hungry mice set off on a hunt to find food for a celebration. In true mouse fashion, they collect berries and acorns and corn. But—uh-oh!—along the way they drop two ears of corn, lose four cherries to greedy crows, and scatter their tomatoes running from a fox. So the tireless mice have to make up the difference. Will they ever get to enjoy their feast? Spotting objects and counting them along with the mice will engage sharp-eyed youngsters.
