Reviews - What do customers think about Duck In The Truck?

Great book!  Jul 28, 2008
We love Duck in a son is almost 4 and we have read the book at least 40 times since we bought it. He loves the rhyming words and the silly duck. It is very appropriate for younger children too.
Our favorite book  May 14, 2008
This has been our 2 yr old grandson's favorite book since he was 9 months old. My daughter and I can recite it in our sleep. Yet, it never grows dull.

The illustrations are bright, colorful and engaging. There are several items to point out and look for, which is what our little guy enjoys.

The text has rhythm and the story begs for participation via sounds effects and physical support.

Our boy shouts every time he sees Duck's vegetables go flying (and we exclaim "Where's the carrot? Look at the watermelon!" etc.) He compares everyone's feet during, "These are the feet, which jump the duck down..." And he gets red in the face helping sheep, frog and duck push against the back of the truck.

I like the introduction to poetic language (again, "the feet that jump the duck down") and the rhyme.

Reviewers have commented on Duck's selfishness in leaving his friends stuck in the muck. However, for our family, being in the muck is a pleasurable, sought-after experience and Duck's quirky character provides opportunity for silly comments.

This is the easiest of the duck books. The others are slightly more complex and Duck's irascibility is even more pronounced. As our boy grows and understands, we know that Duck's less desirable characteristics will serve as object lessons and also provide opportunities to highlight the patience and friendship of Goat, Frog and Sheep. Good lessons, those.

Great fun  Apr 26, 2008
Our little boy (a young toddler) loves this book. We've got hundreds of similar books and have owned and read this one for months now--it doesn't get old and he still loves and laughs at it. It's got great illustrations, excellent rhymes, lots of opportunity for sound effects and voices. As for the idea that the duck is treating his friends badly, well...that's part of why it's funny! You have to explain that the duck is being a jerk, although I think the kid will see that himself.
A favorite!  Nov 21, 2007
My 13 month old son LOVES this book. He "reads" it every chance he gets and loves flipping through the pages to point at the different pictures (which are so funny and clever). He asks us to read this book before naps and bedtime constantly. Our family loves Duck in the Truck!
Great for both girls and boys!!!  Nov 1, 2007
I had to buy this for my 2.5 year old daughter and my friend's son for christmas after borrowing this book from the library. We love rhyming books at our house and it one is wonderful. It is so fun to read!!!
