Summer Reading - Seven Hungry Babies
Seven Hungry Babies by Candace Fleming and illustrated by Eugene Yelchin, is a hit in our house. Its a fun summer read as baby birds hatch from their eggs, and are of course VERY HUNGRY. Lucky for them Mamma Bird is ready and waiting to feed them, one by one by one by one...Until exhausted Mamma Bird has seven full sleeping chicks and ready to relax herself. But of course there's no chance of that as the babies awake, ready for more food. But don't worry this is one smart Mamma Bird!
This book had us giggling and counting up the sleeping chicks versus the chicks still needing fed. It's a great read to introduce early math concepts of counting, adding and subtracting. Cartoon illustrations accompany the text and are vibrant and fun. They will definitly will hold your little one's attention.
