Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2–Little Duck has a big idea—he wants to dance on Broadway. To get there, he must fly from the prairie where he has grown up to the Big Apple. With help from a truck driver named Big Betty, the duck realizes his dream. The book, written by Saskatchewan-born singer-songwriter Connie Kaldor, is enhanced by charming illustrations. The second part of the book includes the lyrics for the songs on the CD, written and performed by Kaldor. Among the songs are Slug Opera (channeling Bernadette Peters in this operatic tribute to the pest), Alligator Waltz (a tango mimicking Madelyn Kahn's singing style), A Duck in New York City (sung in a big Broadway show-tune style, a la Ethel Merman, with an excerpt of New York, New York included), Seed in the Ground (building as the song progresses in a manner similar to The House That Jack Built), I Love Tomatoes (set to a Caribbean beat), and Quack, Quack, Quack (an a capella piece about animals). The CD also includes a PDF file of sheet music and song lyrics in both English and French. Kaldor excels and every song is a winner. Sure to be a hit for preschool story times.–Stephanie Bange, Wilmington-Stroop Branch, Dayton Metro Library, OH

This is a really cute book with great pictures and a very imaginative story that emphasizes the "I think I can" theme.

It is great for children of all ages!

I initially borrowed this book and CD set from the library on a whim because the cover looked interesting. Two renews later, I am purchasing one for the house. I have a 2 and 3 year old who listen to this CD non-stop. My 3 year old knows all the words, and I must confess I DO TO. The songs are so creative and catchy -- you will find yourself humming along with the alligators. This is certainly a smart collection of songs that will introduce your little one to various styles of music. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!

Format: Audio CD
We heard your "Duck in New York City" in a CBC radio program in Dec. about kids' music and the value of it to their musical growth. We loved that song and we went to Chapters the same day and purchased 2 copies of the CD. The songs are excellent and it is a great "learn and sing-along" disk. Our only problem(??)is that the 5 year old insists that there are butter-bugs in the slug song and her older sister disagrees! Great fun!! They both listen so carefully, and love to sing and dance to all the songs. We will be on the lookout for your other releases. Thank You...keep them coming!!

A friend gave my daughter this CD for her first birthday, and we've been listening to it almost nonstop ever since. The lyrics are clever and fun, and the music is beautifully scored and performed. I sing along with all the songs myself, and my daughter sways and dances. Highly recommended!!!
