This book has a wonderful repetitive rhyme that introduces all the different number conbinations for the concept of 7. At the same time there is a predictable quality to each of the pages and the rhyming patterns that promotes emergent literacy as well as numeracy. Great for Preschool aged children.

The children story Quack and Count was a neat little book that shows kids how to count to seven in a fun little way. What I like best was how the arthur was able to find different expressions to use in each of the different pages of the story.

I had bought the book for a 2nd grade lesson, but it is too basic for 2nd graders. The book has a great concept for teaching using different addends to get the same number, but definitely for K-1.

My daughter (20 months) loved this book (from the library) as much for the fun illustrations and rhymes but particularly for the game of finding three elusive ladybugs on each double-page spread. It's this kind of continuity and detail that makes a great kid's author/illustrator and Keith Baker is definitely one of them.

This is a really great book and teaching tool to use when introducing addition to your 1st grade class on how many different ways you and numbers can be used to make the number or sum of 7. The print is big and would be great for carpet story time.

Keith Baker's illustrations aren't really illustrations but are cut paper collages that are absolutely beautiful. The pages are vibrant and include lots of details like 3 ladybugs that play hide and seek on each page with the reader and can be found on every pages except the very last page. The ducklings are so precious and their facial expressions are done really well considering it's mostly done so from the each duck's eyes.

As the other reader says this book would be to basic for 2nd graders but would be great for 1st graders and kindergarten students towards the end of the school year. This would be a great book as a gift because it grows with it's reader but being a bright pages, and count the ducklings from 1 - 7 and find the 3 ladybugs. Then growing as your child to counting numbers that make the sum of 7 to your child being able to read.

Quack and Count actually teaches preschoolers how numbers relate to each other. It has fun and bright illustrations ans story line. I wish there were a whole series for different numbers. Really great resource!

The book is about 7 little ducks who are playing in the pond. They play games such as peek a boo, hide and seek and chase bumblebees. There is also a ladybug hidden on each page. Read this wiith your toddler and see if they can find the hidden ladybug.

I liked the illustrations in the book the best. They are made from piece of cut paper to make a collage.

I would recoomed this book to parents and caregivers of kids ages birth to 3. It's a fun way to teach them the concept of addition.
