A concept book that teachers more than just counting, Five Little Ducks introduces young audiences to story, sequence of events, rhythm, and rhyme. Singing the words helps children read and follow along with the written words and pictures, something they will do repeatedly for the sense of accomplishment. Despite mama duck's sad circumstances, the story is illustrated with cheerful ink and watercolor pictures which reassure the reader that all ends well.

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.

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

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!
