Item description for Big Fat Hen by Keith Baker...

Little ones learn to count from uno to diez with a big fat hen, in a rollicking rendition of a popular nursery rhyme!

Publishers Description
"One, two, buckle my shoe. Three, four, shut the door. . . . . Nine, ten, big fat hen " "Baker uses an imaginative array of acrylic colors for his hens--greens, purples, and pinks to contrast with the warm, yellow straw background. There are lots of things to count, such as sticks, eggs, chicks, and hens. A fine choice for toddler story hours."--"School Library Journal"

Reviews - What do customers think about Big Fat Hen?

Ok  Feb 28, 2008
The pictures are beautiful but several are so similar. Not really a story for little ones to follow.
Lovely Artwork - a review of "Big Fat Hen" (paperback)  Apr 25, 2007
This is a book that re-illustrates the old One-Two-Buckle-My-Shoe rhyme; this time with cute chicks and fanciful hens. The book begins with mama hen chasing after 1 dragon fly, while 2 eggs wait to hatch. It goes on to show two cute chicks buckling a shoe, which is really rather silly and just the sort of thing toddlers find funny. [When I read this to my son, we both laughed with glee as the cute chicks 'pick(ed) up sticks'.] The book finishes with a flurry of hatching and dozens of soft yellow chicks.

Three Stars. [C+] Lovely artwork. The familiar rhyme of One-Two-Buckle-My-Shoe is retold in a cute fashion using chickens. Suitable for a gift for babies and toddlers, it is perhaps not the best acquisition for the home shelves as there is only one poem.

What a find!  Jul 31, 2000
I bought this book sight unseen and absolutely love it. I'm a kinder teacher always on the prowl for books with folk stories and nursery rhymes. Big Fat hen is... 1,2 Buckle My Shoe. The illustrations are fabulous and the kids, love the rhyming. It's a popular pick in my classroom!
Great book!  Jan 22, 2000
This is a great first book for a child, lots of counting and things to see in the pictures if you are really paying attention. Your toddler/preschooler will love it!
My 2 year old daughter loves this book.  Apr 25, 1999
There are ample pictures to count on each page that match the numbers on the page. The illustrations are gorgeous and she always claps when the chicks hatch. We read it every night.
