Hattie the hen lays one egg, and then another...and then another. All she can do now is wait — and wait — for her baby chicks to hatch. Soon enough, she hears a "tap, tap" from one of the eggs. "Who' s there?" asks Hattie. A lift of the flap will reveal the "cheep cheep" of Hattie's new chick. Another tap and another follow, and all the chicks come out to play, until the sun begins to set and Hattie bids her little ones a sweet goodnight. This is a perfectly simple, truly satisfying story that will delight young readers!
