The French Chef's Eggs
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     "Ed, fetch me some eggs," said the French chef to his helper, Ed. Ed went to the henhouse. He went to get eggs from the hens' nests. The little red hen had three eggs in her nest. Ed went to the nest to get the eggs. The little red hen squawked loudly, "My eggs are not ready yet."
 
2     Ed went to the next nest. This hen was white. Ed took the eggs from the white hen's nest. There were seven eggs in her nest. "Seven eggs! This will be plenty for the French chef," said Ed. So off he went to the kitchen with the seven eggs he had taken from the second hen's nest.
 
3     The next day, the French chef said to Ed, "Fetch me one large egg and two small eggs." So Ed went off to the hen house to get one large egg and two small eggs.
 
4     First, he went to the little red hen's nest. The little red hen squawked loudly, "My eggs are not ready yet." Ed looked in the white hen's nest. Her eggs were small. Ed looked all around the hen house for a large egg. There were no other eggs in the henhouse.
