Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Other ducky titles that may fit well in Easter baskets include a bevy of board books and interactive titles. In Five Little Ducks, Dan Yaccarino paints an endearing quintet of wayward ducklings who, one by one, drift away from their mother. But after the lone "Sad mother duck went out one day,/ over the hill and far away," and states her refrain ("Quack! Quack! Quack!"), "all the little ducks came back!" Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-Yaccarino has taken a traditional folk song and enhanced the lyrics to create a clever and entertaining variation. These little ducks go over the hill, across the lake, under the water, into the town, and into the woods. The stylized illustrations have clear lines and lots of interesting and clever details to enhance the story. The ducklings look very smug about their newfound independence, alligators and turtles function as transportation for them, and, in the end, when Mother Duck calls them back, they fly home on newly fledged wings. This title will make a fine addition to any board book collection and an enjoyable variation for storytimes.-Be Astengo, Alachua County Library, Gainesville, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

This book was a real find for me, making my baby boy's bedtime easier, smoother,and more fun. Through it he learned one of his first three words... QUACK! He loves the word and can't stop saying it. When it is bedtime, he will actually reach for the book, saying 'Quack Quack' When I pull it down and open it, it almost always gets a smile from him. It is fun, colorful, and exciting...the paper tabs make the ducks move in all sorts of different ways, and the art is very vivid, with happy colors and tongue in cheek outfits on the ever-busy mother duck. The end is a lot of fun too. This is my boy's first 'favorite book'...a milestone in his reading life.
