Today we read some delicious and tasty books about chocolate!

Now there are eight
Eight little candles on candle sticks Wh! Wh!

Six little candles and not one more Wh! Wh!
And now there are four
Four little candles red, white and blue Wh! Wh!
Now there are two
Two little candles standing in the sun Wh! Wh!
Now there are none.
Our next book was:
Words and pictures by David Slonim
