Mama Duck and her five little ducklings, Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, Puddle, and Little Quack live together in a nice and soft nest. Soon the ducklings are old enough to begin swimming and Mama Duck is teaching them to get out of the nest. It is time to become independent and learn to swim. They were all scared. With mama duck¿s positive encouragement and help from their siblings all 5 ducks learn to swim including the smallest one Little Quack.

This book starts out telling us how many siblings Little Quack has. Momma tells all of her ducklings that they have to leave one day. Little Quack was not ready to leave his momma. All of his brothers had jumped into the pond, but he was left on the land. He decided he would sniff the water. He touched it and went for it. He closed his eyes and into the water he plunged. Momma knew he could do it.

Five little ducklings are ready to leave the nest, but they are all too scared to make the first jump. One by one they make a big splash into the pond and overcome their fear. Good counting book, great be brave book, introduces the concept of adding.

Ten little ducks are afraid to start swimming, but one by one they join their mama, until the last one is left - Little Quack.Children's counting book.This is a cute little book. The duck's personalities are appealing, each one is so unique. It's still a little counting book, just a little ho-hum.This is a good preK book. The ducks all have their unique personalities, and the biggest aren't always the bravest. It is cool that as they count down the ducks on land they count up the ducks in the water. Good for number sense.

Little Quack by Lauren Thompson & Derek Anderson (illus.) is the first book Ms. Thompson ever wrote about Little Quack and his brothers and sisters. There are currently four picture books and four separate board books with Little Quack in them. I really wish there were more because the whole series is adorable. This book finds Little Quack and his siblings (Widdle, Waddle, Piddle, and Puddle) are learning how to swim in the pond they live next to for the first time. All of them are fearful at first, but one by one they gather their courage and join their Mama in the pond. It's a great book for talking about what children might be afraid of and seeing how they can overcome their fears like Little Quack. In all of the books, the pictures are vivid and beautiful. The prose is well-written and engaging. It's a great series in general. There isn't a single book that I wouldn't recommend to friends, family, and library patrons.

Reading aloud to kids is no chore. It is in fact a pleasure, disguised in the form of daily task. We started reading aloud together with a gem of a book. Little Quack. It still rings in my ears... "Mama Duck had five little ducklings. Piddle, Puddle, Widdle, Waddle and ... Little Quack The text by author Lauren Thompson is harmonious and melodic, but the real star of the book are the illustrations by Derek Anderson. After we read the first Little Quack installment, we went on to new ones. VERDICT: SNAP IT UP! ReadAloudDad(.)blogspot(.)com

We love this book. I got it from the library and then had to buy it because my kids like it so much. We brought it home to read to my 3 year old, but it is the only book my 16 month old will sit still and wants to have read to her. The illustrations are great and now we're moving forward to the Little Quack Bedtime and I bought the Little Quack Gund animal for my little one!

My daughter makes me read this book over and over again, she loves the book. She enjoys it so much she has to give Little Quack a kiss on the last page.

We received this book as a baby gift when our first daughter was born. It's been one of the books that I read to her since we brought her home. I guess it was a natural that it became one of her favorites! She even picked up the phrase, 'No, Mamma no' and says that when she doesn't want to do something!!! She now counts along with me when I count with the 'Quack-u-lator'. The books has gotten so much love that I now need to buy a new one prior to baby #2 arriving!

Last year I was looking on this website for a book to buy my son for his first Christmas. This book was recommended, so I bought it. I'm so glad I did; he just loves it! It's a sweet story with adorable illustrations which are big, bright and colorful. He wants us to read it to him all the time. I keep hoping they decide to publish it in a board book. My son wants to hold it and turn the pages, but at his young age, I'm afraid it wouldn't survive all his affection! I highly recommend this book to parents of young children. Even my 5 year old daughter loves it.
