10 Little Rubber Ducksby Eric Carle
Synopses & Reviews
Ahoy! Here We Go
Around the World
with 10 Little Rubber Ducks
"Ducks overboard!" shouts the captain, as a giant wave washes a box of 10 little rubber ducks off his cargo ship and into the sea. The 10 little rubber ducks are swept away in various directions. One drifts west, where a friendly dolphin jumps over it. A whale sings to another. But, as the sun sets, the 10th little rubber duck is left all alone, bobbing helplessly on the big wide sea. Small readers and listeners will empathize with the little duck's plight — and will rejoice at the heartwarming surprise ending.
In this poignant and funny story, illustrated with strikingly designed collages, Eric Carle also takes readers on an exciting voyage of discovery. Following the little ducks as they float to all parts of the globe, young explorers can see for themselves the meanings of directional words, and learn simple math concepts such as counting and the use of cardinal and ordinal numbers. Each creature the ducks meet is seen in its own habitat and behaves in a true-to-life manner, offering a very simple first view of biology and geography.
All aboard for a world of learning and fun!
Based on the true story of a shipment of rubber bathtub toys that fell overboard from a container ship, this interactive picture book by the legendary Eric Carle explores numbers, directions, opposites, geography, animals, and more. Embedded in the book is a duck with a squeaking sound chip. Full color.

Eric Carle comenta acerca de este libro: "Así como los libros sobre el abecedario presentan las letras y las palabras sencillas a los niños pequeños, De la cabeza a los pies les enseña, a través de un rítmico juego de preguntas y respuestas, las partes básicas del cuerpo y sencillos movirnientos corporales".
"Y de la misma manera que un niñio progresa desde la comprensión de palabras sencillas hasta la lectura y la escritura de palabras más complejas, oraciones y cuentos, irá desde ejecutar sencillos movirnientos corporales hasta bailar, hacer ejercicios, gimnástica y participar con confianza y placer en deportes y otras actividades".
