Twelve by Twelve with Eggs
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Farmer Todd ran a chicken farm. He had lots of hens. His hens laid lots and lots of eggs. The eggs were good to eat. Farmer Todd liked his chicken farm.
 
2     The Barefoot Farmer Store had good food for sale. The store sold corn, carrots, and peas. The store sold apples, bananas, and oranges. The store sold milk, bread, cheese, and eggs. They got their eggs from Farmer Todd. Farmer Todd sold his eggs to the store. Then the store could sell the eggs to hungry people.
 
3     Sara from the Barefoot Farmer Store called Farmer Todd. She asked him to bring one hundred forty-four eggs to the store. That was a lot of eggs!
 
4     "I think I can help you," Farmer Todd told Sara. "I will have to see how many eggs my hens have laid today."
 
5     Farmer Todd trotted out to the hen house. "Hello, pretty ladies!" he said as he peered inside. "Have you been laying eggs today?"
