Ten Blue Wrens: And What a Lot of Wattle!
Count the busy wrens on their fine stick legs,..the bowerbird's treasures, his bottle tops and pegs...How many potaroos? How many pies?..How many gum leaves? How many flies?..Now count the strawberries on that luscious pavlova...Quick! Count the lamingtons. Oh! None left over!..In Elizabeth Honey's playful and absolutely Australian counting book you can count from one to a thrillion!
