About the Author

Phyllis Root says she wanted ONE DUCK STUCK to be "a north woods wetlands counting book, accurate to the marshes of Minnesota. All the animals are actually found there. I love to go canoeing and camping, and this book is a composite of my experiences."

Jane Chapman does all her painting in her kitchen, looking out onto the garden. "The color blue in ONE DUCK STUCK is the exact same blue that's in my kitchen," she says. Although she has a pet tortoise named Muggs, who at age 70 is a family heirloom, one day she would like to have a duck as well.

This is a very bright and colorful way of teaching children how to count up to ten. It also teaches the importance of helping out your friends when they get stuck! This story is about a duck who gets stuck in the muck and needs help getting out of the muck so he calls upon his other forest friends. There are fish, moose, crickets, snakes, possums, snails, skunks, and more who all try to help duck get out of the muck. As friends try to help, the number of friends grow each tim until it gets to ten. Finallyt, they all agree that is everyone helps, they shoudl be able to get duck unstuck!

When one duck gets stuck in the muck, all the animals try to help him out, from 2 fish on up to 10 dragonflies. The illustrations are really vibrant and colorful, and the cadence of the text is really lovely and fun to read. It's great for very young ones because of the repetition.

This is a very cute rhyming and counting book. Nice illustrations and a lot of fun.

I've had this book since the five year old niece was a baby :)It's one of those repetitive books so loved by toddlers, very calming. The one problem I have with it is that, for the format and age group, it's a little long.

1 duck stuck in the muck.....all the animals of the marsh come by to Help! Help! Who can help! 2 fish...tails go splish, etc. in the end everyone helps our duck to pull itself free and fly away. Little ones will love to chant along with the story: together, we can do it-- similar to the enourmous turnip --- always fresh-- Root is a master of language and fun. recommended for storytime and outreach to large groups. always a winner.

My (almost) four year old son and I have checked this book out of the library countless times and now I have finally purchased a copy to own. The illustrations are fabulous and the text is too! Just a word of warning-- if you come across the board book, it is abridged and that was highly upsetting to my son.
