What To Expect: Ducks, Camping, Counting, Rhyme

The Five Little Ducks, which were first introduced in Duck Dunks and Duck Skates, are back!  This time they are going camping, and as usual, there are mishaps and mayhem along the way!  Hiroe Nakata’s beautiful watercolor illustrations are particularly striking as they depict the ducks pitching their tents, on a fishing expedition, and toasting marshmallows (my favorite one was the gigantic fish–“We lost the big one!” five ducks cry).  The story also deals with scary night-time sounds, as the little ducks hear a very loud, “Whoo!  Whoo! Whoooooo!” outside of their tents. The engaging rhyme makes this tale a perfect read-aloud book, and it also is a great resource for first time campers.
