Editorial Reviews

Review

Raffi lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Jose Aruego lives in New York City.
Ariane Dewey lives in New York City.

From the Inside Flap

First published in 1989, this charming Raffi Songs to Read/reg/ has fresh appeal as a board book that the youngest child can hold. With sweet illustrations by veteran children's book artists Jose Aruego and Ariane Dewey, this lovely counting song will invoke squeals of delight from babies and toddlers. They'll love counting down as first five little ducks, then four, then three, then two, then one go out to play, not to return. Sadly, Mother Duck waits alone through all four seasons until spring returns and with it her five ducks, all grown up-along with their new families of baby ducks.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

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."

As with other Raffi books/songs, "Five Little Ducks" is adorable and so much fun to sing with a little one!
