It was early morning on Mother's Day. The sun had not yet risen, but Ferdinand and Nina were already busy.
"You go look for some flowers," whispered Nina, "I'll make the muffin."
They tiptoed about in order to not wake Mother Hen. They wanted to surprise her with breakfast in bed. Even the big white rooster was in on the plan. He promised to wait until breakfast was served before he began crowing to greet the day.
