Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreSA straightforward version of the familiar counting rhyme. Paparone's artwork, done in rich, saturated acrylics and colored pencil, effectively follows the rhyming pattern of the text. Mother Duck is shown doing a variety of household chores as well as engaging in a few hobbies. At the end of the day, she lures her youngsters home with milk and apple pie. Unfortunately, the ducks lack character. The ducklings are identical with no distinct personality traits. Similarly, Mother Duck has a vacant look and seems unconcerned about her offsprings' wanderings. Despite this flaw, Five Little Ducks is a pleasant, gentle book reminiscent of days gone by. For a more robust version, try the one from Raffi's ``Songs to Read'' series (Crown, 1988), illustrated by Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey.Dawn Ibey, Vancouver Public Library, Canada
Carolyn Phelan
According to the nursery rhyme, "Five little ducks went out one day, / Over the hills and far away." This picture book portrays the duck family living in a little house in the country, where mother duck works the day away hanging out the clothes, ironing, painting, gathering apples, and baking. Meanwhile, her ducklings wander off into the idyllic countryside, returning at dusk for apple pie. Rounded forms and warm undertones in the full-color artwork give the book a visual coziness that echoes the tone of the verse, while narrative details in the illustrations extend the rhyme into a satisfying book. A pleasant version of an old favorite.

Meet the Author

Reeve Lindbergh, daughter of aviator Charles Lindbergh and poet Anne Morrow Lindbergh, first learned about Bessie Coleman in 1986, the 60th anniversary of her father's famous flight. "Bessie was an incredibly brave person who was hardly noticed, while my parents got so much publicity it was difficult for them to live their normal lives. I saw a crazy imbalance and wanted to try to set things right." Reeve Lindbergh lives in Vermont.
Pamela Paparone observes that NOBODY OWNS THE SKY is "about making dreams come true. My own dream has always been to be a children's book illustrator. In fact, I was ten years old when I created my first children's book. I dedicated it to Johnny Cash." Pamela Paparone lives in Pennsylvania.
