From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 1. Once again the author of the popular MathStart series explains a math concept in a simple, exuberant story with bright, clear pictures. A young cowboy cares for his five little ducks, and he scurries around to bring them three sacks of food and four bundles of hay with his two hands. When each duck brings a friend, the boy has double the ducks, so he needs to double the hay and double the food. For that, he needs double the hands to do the work--so, luckily, a friend joins him. The numbers are on the pages and so are all the things to count. In a double-page spread at the back of the book, Murphy suggests lots of activities and games for parents to use in the kitchen and at play to make preschoolers' first steps into addition and multiplication more fun.
