Five Little Ducks - a delightful picture book for toddlersFive Little Ducks - illustrated by Ivan Bates
Published by Orchard Books an imprint of Scholastic





Perfect for celebrating Spring, Bates’ lovely, gentle illustrations capture this traditional children’s counting song beautifully. In addition to watching the young ducklings venture into the hills, young children will enjoy spotting a friendly beaver, a curious gull, a hungry rabbit and a grazing cow.

Mother Duck is filled with affection for her youngsters as they go forth, she is anxious when the ducklings are missing and overjoyed when they return.

Observant children will notice that each of the ducklings returns with a special gift for Mother Duck.

Endnotes include the music and additional verses for Five Little Ducks.

Quote from Walt Disney

"There are many little ways to enlarge your child's world. Love of books is the best of all." - Jackie Kennedy

Oh, magic hour, when a child first knows she can read printed words!

“She turned to the sunlight And shook her yellow head,And whispered to her neighbor- -Winter is dead.”

It distresses me that parents insist that their children read or make them read. The best way for children to treasure reading is to see the adults in their lives reading for their own pleasure.
