Editorial Reviews

Review

Raffi lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Jose Aruego lives in New York City.
Ariane Dewey lives in New York City. --This text refers to the Board book edition.

From the Inside Flap

Illus. in full color. "Vivid pictures tell the tale of a mother duck who loses her ducklings, one by one. A happy ending is assured when they return with ducklings of their own. Music and chords are included. The title is well done, giving a visual dimension to a popular children's song, and will be successful for story times and general library use."--"School Library Journal.

Format: Board book
ISBN 0517800578 - "Songs to Read" SOUNDS fun, but I wasn't at all sure that it would translate into a book well. It turns out that songs to read might just be one of the coolest ideas ever, for young readers!

Mother Duck takes her little ducks out and, each day, one fewer returns when she calls, until there are none. A very sad Mother Duck finally goes out one day and calls... and all five return - with spouses and their own babies in tow!

The text is, of course, the lyrics of the song. Kids who know the song will enjoy the fact that, by default, they could read this book... even if they can't read. The illustrations, by Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey, are vibrantly colored and, despite the lack of great detail, will catch the eyes of young readers.

Board book pages are thick and sturdy and will stand up to some abuse at the hands of young kids and the glossy pages wipe clean fairly easily. This is a great book, in particular, for young children who have older siblings - it can be used to help them understand that children move out when they get older, but they're not gone forever.

My 15-month old daughter loves to hear me read this book! She studies the colorful pictures on each page, and watches my face as I say "Quack, quack, quack, quack." It's short, with just a couple of lines on each page, an it has an excellent rhythm.

This has consistently been one of my toddler's favorite books since she was only a few months old. She loves to hear me sing the words to this book and never seems to tire of it. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and it has become a favorite of mine as well. Highly recommended!

The illustrations in this book aren't anywhere near as good or interesting as those in Baby Belluga, but our toddler son still enjoys it, and it is fun to sing the book to him at bedtime. It has also helped him to understand (and articulate) that sometimes even Mommies can be sad sometimes. The story has a happy ending (of course), but still provides just enough cause for concern and suspense to help toddlers learn to be patient though some sadness and worry.

We liked the book because it had ducks in it. Jamie's favorite part was when the duck went out one day. Jay liked when Mother Duck said, "Quack, Quack."
