To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is the paperback version, good book by Phyllis Root. The pictures illustrated by Jane Chapman are colorful and easy for children to identify. While reading it to a group of preschoolers, I noticed the words had a beat to it. Some of the students were rocking to the beat. Maybe it was the way I was reading it, maybe they had too much energy? I don’t know, but whatever the case was, they enjoyed the book. Teaching children social values like working together to help an animal in distress (or anyone in need for that matter) is what I think is the best aspects of this story. For educational value, counting the animal pictures are optional. I totally recommend it.
One Duck Stuck is a darling children's book -- that moms and dads will love, too! We checked this out of the library, and liked it so much we went to amazon.com and bought 3! It's rhythmic verse is enchanting and the kids recite it like a song. The alliteration is clever, as well. The illustrations are colorful and alive! The whole book just draws you in and makes you want to read it over and over again. It's a feel-good, happy, sing-song little story the whole family will love.
My son absolutely loves this book! He doesn't say words too much yet, but he does say "duck, duck, duck" and he loves the page with all the sounds on it, "Splish, Clomp, Pleep, Plop, Plunk, ...Zing" He LOVES this! He knows them in order and we read it sometimes every day, or at least once a week!
This is a pretty cute book and is among my daughter’s favorites. We have both the board book version and the soft cover. We bought the board book version hoping we could sub it in for the soft cover as it is simplified and more durable but my daughter knew the difference so the soft cover remains the favorite. The story is pretty cute though a little wordy and they call the opossums “possums” which isn’t accurate and a wee bit irksome but i’m trying to try to tolerate it.
