Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Here is a modern story. Three young ducks go to visit an older pair who could be their parents or grandparents. Once they arrive, all three start chatting on their cellphones while the older pair just watch and wonder. Then they flop in front of the TV, remote control at the ready. What is next? Snacks and a bit of a mess. After that, an even larger mess as they head for the kitchen to make mush which they turn into some delicious cookies. But wait—this mess must be cleaned up. Then off they go, after what appears to have been a whirlwind visit featuring very little conversation with their hosts. This is typical of today's middle graders and teens, perhaps. Young ones will enjoy the antics of this trio, as well as the simple text which includes a lot of sound words like "brring," "quack," "ding-dong," and "munch." The colorful illustrations feature a trio of fluffy yellow ducks and two older, more graceful white ones (the adults). Part of the "Step Into Reading" series, this is a step 1 title whose hallmark is large type, easy words, rhyme and rhythm, and picture clues. This book is targeted to children who know the alphabet and are eager to begin reading. The opening note to parents gives more information about the series and tips for shared reading. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1—This level-one reader uses rhyming words to enhance phonemic awareness. It does so with a simple story about all the things that ducks can do ("Ducks slurp/Ducks burp"). The spare text allows for little narration, but picture clues divulge that a duck family is off to visit a loving goose relative, and the day includes activities familiar to young children. The animals embrace, eat lunch, and spend a messy afternoon baking, followed by cleanup and a fond farewell. Concentrated colored backgrounds add to the visual appeal of the pages, which have either black or white text and bright cartoon illustrations. The fact that the ducks use a remote control to operate their TV and talk on a cell phone adds a contemporary touch to this otherwise timeless story. A solid choice for libraries needing entry-level readers.—Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT
