Crows travel out to find some snacks. First three crows, then six, then nine, and finally twelve crows find tasty things around the neighborhood to eat. However, the discover they are being watched by one hungry cat so they fly off and say good-bye.

Summary: 12 counting crows are flying around to find snacks only to find a someone watching them in the end. Great for counting and teaching rhymes. Most of the things to count are spaced out around the page, making it fun to count.

An amazing book that starts by counting one, two, three, crows in a tree, bedecked in red scarves and hungry as can be. So they fly out of their nest with snacking in mind, and snack they do. Snack one, snack two, snack three all the way to a dozen. Therefore, before they have time to complain about bellyaches, they have a bigger problem: a cat has been eyeing them as a potential snacks. In addition, the illustrations are fun and the rhyming is unique.

I loved how the illustrations were black and white with pops of red that the crows were wearing. It made if fun but didn't take away from the words and counting in the book.
