Reviews - What do customers think about Hit the Ball Duck?

Baby Loves the Duck  Jul 22, 2007
My munchkin LOVES the main character in this book. We started by reading Duck In Truck. Every night it was "Duckntuk Mama!". After I read "Duck In Truck" her only response was "Again! Moor Duckntuk Mama!". Like most parents you can only read a book so many times. We enjoy "Hit The Ball Duck" but it isn't as popular as "Duck In Truck" in our house. I still advise buying this book.
Cute Read  May 26, 2007
This is another installment in the duck seriers, but it's not as cute as some of the other duck ones. My kids still love it, but I think it lacks just a little something as a parent. Still worth it.
Animal baseball  May 13, 2007
A duck and his animal friends have a friendly game of baseball, but the game quickly gets sidetracked when duck hits the ball into a tree and the friends need to work out how to get it down again.
The story is written in verse and has some lovely illustrations also.
Great KIDS story...  Feb 27, 2007
My son loves this book... as do I :) It offers nice illustrations and simple dialogue for the kids to follow. Lots of different animals and good story flow make it a great bedtime story.

And the ending is GREAT... !!
If your boy loves balls...  May 31, 2006
My son has a new obsession-balls. He loves his t-ball set. He nadders "ball, ball, ball, ball..." whenever he spies a baseball game or any other game involving a ball. So, I searched the bookstore for a book about balls that I liked, because I knew I would have to read it over and over again! This book has done the trick for us.

It appeals to all ages. It has the animals and the sound effects (swoosh, crack, bump etc.) that toddlers love. It is comical to my daughters, as the bossy duck is cute in his ideas for retreiving the ball, and ultimately is shut down with a YOU'RE OUT! It also teaches them the value of every team member. It appeals to me, because I get a chuckle out of an A type personality exhibited in a duck and the other group dynamics which we see in play groups everywhere! The little frog is run over in the beginning because of his size, but he plays 2 very important roles later on in the book.

The illustrations aren't prize winning but certainly aren't drab brown and/or black and white. They are simply fine. I consider them cheery.

All in all, I give it 5 stars because my different aged children all love it! I give them choices, and it is one of their "go to" books. So far, I haven't gotten bored reading it to them, so that counts for something too!

P.S. Using different animal sounding voices has really been entertaining as well!
