Reviews - What do customers think about One Duck Stuck?
One Duck Stuck Apr 28, 2008
An excellent book for preschoolers. I teach preschool and the book definitely captured the children's interest. After reading the book, we did an art project based on the book. The children painted a piece of paper brown, then added a pre-cut duck shape, and then surrounded the duck with green strips of construction paper to represent the grass. The children giggled as "the duck got stuck in the muck."
Funny Feb 24, 2008
This is a great book, especially if you have the tape. Children enjoy this book, I reccomend it for any early childhood program. A great way to introduce numbers.
Great for language development Nov 25, 2007
I use this book as a speech therapist with toddlers. I simplify the text slightly and it is great for prediction, auditory memory, and word final k stimulation. Once they are familiar with it, I encourage the child to "help" me with the repetitive chorus. As a bonus it is simply a really fun and cute book.
One Duck Stuck Oct 14, 2007
I picked up One Duck Stuck because it reminded me of Ducks in Muck but for more advanced readers. The two books use similar rhymes but One Duck Stuck is three times the length and the rhymes border on tongue twisters.
The basic plot centers around the stuck duck and her attempts to get out of the muck. She enlists the help of her swamp friends: fish, insects, some birds and a variety of animals. Separately the can't help the duck but what if they work together?
a favorite Jun 23, 2007
This is one of my nephew's favorite books and it hasn't taken long for us all to memorize it. Fun to read, fun to hear, a good story of helping. Some have criticized the board book for leaving out some additional text, however, little ones will not notice, and you can always buy the longer book later.
