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.
