Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Originally entitled "Ducks Ditty," this little poem describes how ducks eat-heads down into the marshy lake bottom and tails sticking up in the air. Kim offers views above and below the water in her somewhat impressionist artwork. The layered paint depicts the think grasses and murky watery world the ducks inhabit. It is amusing and can be enjoyed by younger and older kids.
School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Simplicity is the hallmark of this vibrant board book. A group of ducklings imitate the adult ducks around them as they go "a-dabbling" in the water ("Heads down, tails up") in search of food. The warm acrylic paintings are filled with the blues of the water, the greens of the reeds, and the yellows of the ducks, making the rhyme even more inviting to children. Although some vocabulary might need explanation, the pacing and the flow of Grahame's poem from The Wind in the Willows make it a successful choice for young listeners.-Rachel Fox, Port Washington Public Library, NY
