Crows in a tree
Crows in the sticks
Crows on a line............".
So the number of crows increase up to twelve;having introduced three at a time.Then comes the cat! And the crows fly off in their original sets :three at a time,A repetition of counting.
This is a counting rhyme with some very attractive looking murder of crows to keep children engaged.From cover to cover illustrations in this book are quite extraordinary, with crows highlighted in red stripy clothing and the rest in pencil sketch in a white backdrop will surely keep kids focused on crows and crows only! Rhyming lines are equally good and simple; also has a touch of humor with the introduction of the cat. And those vivacious crows play a major role in this book.
