The five little ducklings are going to school. That's so exciting and so scary at the same time! This is the typical book that comes to hand when we need to introduce new situations to the little ones. The ducklings know the school will be lots of fun, but the idea of being apart from mama duck makes them anxious. Of course mama duck, with endless patience, encourage them to take the plunge. They love school, and even better, they feel so good they didn't let the fear decide for them!
The rhymed text is very accessible for the little ones. I'd say the story is perfect for kids in the 3-5 years old range, especially if they are getting ready for school.
The illustrations are colorful and funny. The little ducklings in their ties and hats ready for school are so cute!
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
