A box of 10 goes overboard and each of the 10 little ducks goes on their own separate journey of exploration and adventure to all parts of the globe. One even encounters a mother duck with her own little duckling children. It's a delightful tale and beautifully illustrated, as you would expect, by Carle. His use of colors in his collages is dazzling. If you've had his previous books and enjoyed them, you're sure to love this one too.
I purchased this because the theme related to my school.
Ten Rubber Ducks ia an Award Winning book that is rich in language, includes math, beautiful art work and based on a true story with a big surprise for the children at the end of the story - the rubber duck squeaks.
I allow children to borrow my books and this one everyone wanted to take home over and over again. I have purchased another for a friend whom borrowed it and her four children loved it.
It is truly a book I will purchase as a gift for children on my gift list. I love to see a child's face light up and smile to a good story and Eric Carle can tell a story with both words and pictures to delight us all.
The book has quite a bit of text on the first couple pages which is great because it isn't a super fast story like some kid's books. The rubber ducks start off in a factory being created and their journey takes them on a cargo ship and then around the world to meet different animals. The first few pages are in-depth and then on each page after the ducks fall off of the cargo ship, they meet a new animal. I like that the animals in this book aren’t the traditional animals that are in children’s stories. They meet a dolphin, octopus, other ducks, whale, flamingo, etc. We love all of the animals and getting to meet what part of the world they are from (ex. Polar Bear in the North). This story also teaches directions since the ducks go all over the world. Overall a great story and I would highly recommend for your collection!
