Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Our Review
Matthew Van Fleet knows his animals. From little lions to spotted frogs to yellow ducklings, he has created charming and lovable characters of all animals through fantastic picture and board books. In the five years since its original publication, Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings has enchanted more than a million readers!

In this edition, Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings comes as a board book in a gift set, complete with a yellow duckling plush doll. Quality does count, and this cute toy hits the mark with soft fur and a sturdy cotton beak and feet. Kids can read along and snuggle with the adorable ducky.

This fabulous board book teaches toddlers textures, colors, shapes, and animals. In some cases the combination of all these lessons might result in a very busy board book, but Van Fleet manages to creatively incorporate the elements into each spread. For example, children are first shown a fuzzy yellow circle. When they pull that tab back, the circle of fur belongs to a fuzzy yellow duckling, quacking along with his pals. And the creativity does not end there. The extremely vivid faces of all the creatures, including the wily iguanas and fun-loving sharks, add to the fun, as does the selection of textures, such as the sticky pink of a frog's tongue.

All in all, a delightfully amusing gift set that goes beyond the standard baby book.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Several interactive titles fit snuggly into Easter baskets. Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings Gift Set by Matthew Van Fleet comes in a bright golden package with see-through windows picturing a touch-and-feel book and a machine-washable downy yellow duckling. Each of the book's spreads features a shape, color and texture, then folds out to reveal the animal to which the attributes belong. "Fuzzy yellow" and "Circle" fold out to reveal the titular ducklings; "Wooly white" and "Rectangle" belong to a herd of sheep. (Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings Worked!

    My son is 18months and he enjoys this book. We have fun touching the material, learning our colors and learning animals. The shapes are fun too, we try and relate the shapes he sees in the book to his other toys. The book really encompasses a lot of learning activities that we make fun. It something that will keep him busy from about ten to twenty minutes, which for him is great. The pages are easy to rip to so it is important that someone sits with him while he moves through the pages. It would be great if the book could be made with stronger pages so they would be harder to rip.

    tactile fun for the little one

    The book is well made and sturdy enough to withstand prodding little fingers. Although the featured animals are obscure like a toad and iguana and not cute and friendly (aside from the duck which is why I bought the book in the first place) the elements used for touch are excellent including a sticky frog tongue.

    This is a new classic for my family!

    What an adorable book! Babies love touchy, feely books, and this is a new favorite! My granddaughter fell in love with this book when she saw the fuzzy ducks. She loves ducks and that was the beginning of the adventure. We take this to church with us and it keeps her entertained for ages.

    Gift set - just like 'A Loon Alone'

    I bought this set for my son and he loves the book and holds the duckling toy while it's read to him, just like with the book A Loon Alone.

    ¿Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings¿ is a tactile treasure for infants and young toddlers!

    Matthew Van Fleet¿s, ¿Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings¿ is a twenty-page, touch-and-feel foldout book about shapes, colors, and animals. It measures approximately 7 ½¿ x 6 ¼¿ x 1¿, and is constructed of heavy cardboard with medium-weight cardstock for the pages and flaps. Fortunately, the pages are sealed on ALL three sides, prohibiting toddler renovations. Accentuated by glossy, white backgrounds the watercolor illustrations are expressive, colorful, and entertaining. The text is large, black, and very basic. It begins on the left side of the book, and consists of two-word phrases such as, ¿Fuzzy Yellow.¿ On the right, is a ¿fuzzy¿ yellow CIRCLE, and the word ¿circle¿ is printed next to it. The reader lifts the flap, and sees six yellow ducklings incorporated into the texture. Printed to the side, is the word ¿ducklings.¿ The book continues in the same manner with a ¿Bumpy¿ Brown TRAINGLE turning into twelve grumpy toads, a ¿Furry¿ Gray SQUARE becomes four koala bears, a ¿Scaly¿ Green OVAL turns into five playful iguanas, a ¿Woolly¿ White RECTANGLE becomes seven bashful sheep, a ¿Scratchy¿ Blue CRESCENT turns into six mischievous Sharks, and a ¿Sticky¿ Pink LINE becomes eight tongue-tied frogs. In addition, the finale is wonderful. It is a four-page, foldout uniting all of the shapes, colors, and animals together in an amusing parade of color and pattern. ¿Fuzzy Yellow Ducklings¿ is an interactive smorgasbord for babies and young toddlers! From the outset, this book captivates children with peek-a-boo flaps, differing textures, and beginner's text. Children adore this book, and learn by means of word recognition and sensation. One could include COUNTING as an extra feature, as we usually count the animals, and it may be the reason why the author/illustrator purposely depicted them in groups of 4,5,6,7,8, and 12. P.S. the grumpy toads are my personal favorite!
