Synopsis

From the creators of the bestselling favorite I Went Walking comes a colorful farmyard adventure brightened by lively baby animals and lots of counting fun. Let's go visiting and see who's ready to play--one foal, two calves, three kittens, four piglets, five ducklings, and six puppies! And once we've stomped in the mud with the piglets and swum in the lake with the ducklings, let's curl up with this adorable menagerie and take an afternoon nap. This adventure-filled cumulative counting book will help youngsters practice their counting skills while they learn to identify their favorite animal babies--a visit every child will remember.
