Sadly, Mother Duck waits alone through all four seasons until spring returns and with it her five ducks, all grown up-along with their new families of baby ducks.

When her five little ducks disappear one by one, Mother Duck sets out to find them. Includes musical notation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Raffi lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Jose Aruego lives in New York City.
Ariane Dewey lives in New York City.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Raffi has entertained thousands of kids with his versions of classic songs. In this one, reproduced in board book form, stylized ducks hide and swim among the water lilies with big mama duck. The outing begins with five little ducks who one by one fail to return home. Mother duck is sad because she is all alone--and kids will note the passage of fall and winter. One fine spring day when she sets out again, she is soon joined by her brood of five with their own families in tow. Unlike Down by the Bay, which is in this same series, the music is not provided. Also available are Wheels on the Bus and Baby Beluga. Note: For kids who might worry, ducks can care for themselves within hours of hatching.

    Good Book to Honor Parents at "Starting School" Storytime

    Last Fall as part of my "Starting School" Storytimes, I read this book in honor of the parents - many of whom were going through the experience of leaving their children at school the first time. They really seemed to appreciate the message of the story, which was entertaining enough for the kids to enjoy, too. The pictures are bright and the text is short and straightforward enough to engage a late toddler/preschool audience.

    Awesome!

    My daughter loves this book and loves to hear it over and over again. Plus it's fun for a parent to read/sing!

    Love It!

    I have been reading this book to my son since he was about 2 month's old. It is the only book he will pay total attention to even if I read it to him twice!
