Ten Texas babies make mischief and fun in this adorable counting book. Children and adults will laugh as these tiny tots run rampant through the Lone Star countryside, getting into the most unlikely jams. The young'uns count down from ten, picking bushels of pecans, scrubbing a piglet, and playing the fiddle. Count back up as the babies swipe Grandmaw's bonnet, cook trail-drive stew, and try to catch an armadillo. After running, swimming, and cooking all day, it's bedtime for the tired tykes.
Mosey on over, draw up a seat, and count to ten, Texas-style!
