Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-- Just because the baby eats the crumbs of bread instead of feeding them to the ducks, uncontrollable commotion breaks out. First the ducks, ``quacky quack-quack,'' are joined by the geese, ``honk! honk!'' Soon all the animals in town--donkeys, dogs, snakes, crocodiles, mice, and a lion--make their characteristic noises at maximum decibels. Even a brass band, playing as loudly as it can, is not heard over the animals' cacophony. All this changes when big brother teaches the baby to toss crumbs to the ducks. Then they joyously shout, ``Yum! Yum!'' This is a comical bit of fluff. Squiggly lined caricatures of animals strut and leap across the pages. The baby, his balloon-shaped head topped by a single hair, looks too innocent to be the cause of so much trouble. The story is told in rhyme with irregular meter. That doesn't seem to matter though, since everything about this book is a bit irregular. The slight story moves quickly. Lively pictures and verse induce eager page turning. In spite of the too-cute expressions, such as ``ducky birds,'' ``hungry birdies,'' and mice who say ``squeeky-squeeky,'' this book may become a favorite with the toddler story-time set. --Nancy Seiner, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh

From Kirkus Reviews

Here's a baby with bread for the ducks, but he's eating it himself. Loudly, the ducks protest--and so do a band, the geese, and a lot of other animals, giving toddlers a chance to join the comical concatenation. Fortunately, the baby's brother knows what to do: trading his ice cream for the bread, he feeds the birds, quells the noise--and sets Baby a good example. A winning interactive tale with wonderfully lively illustrations in vibrantly modulated black line and cheerful color. Fine for toddler group or lap.

You will not be disappointed if you buy this book. I'm so glad it's still in print. Kids love to make all the animal sounds along with you when you read this book to them. The illustrations are great, as well. An excellent choice for your children's library.

I picked this book up at a second hand store for my 2-year-old daughter. She immediately fell in love with it, and so started 6 months of reading Quacky Quack Quack every night.

A boy, his mother, and his baby brother are off to the park with a bag of bread for the ducky birds. But, the baby starts eating the bread instead, much to the chagrin of the ducks, and the geese, and all the other birds that start making all sorts of noises begging for the bread. The boy finally steps in and straightens things out for the birds and his baby brother. This is a really cute rhyming story with great pictures. My two-year-old loves the last picture in the book, where everyone; boy, baby, and birds, are all happy.

I have memorized this entire book and don't even have to look at the words any more, but it doesn't get annoying or old. Quacky Quack Quack is a keeper.
