Duck Dunks

Duck Dunks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Its summer! Five little ducks cant wait to splash into the sea. With their swimsuits on and a picnic for later, theyre ready for a day of sand and sun.
 
Children will want to dive right into this delightful companion to Duck Skates.
 
Duck Dunks is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

Review:

"Berry and Nakata's counting book in verse blends easy, punchy rhymes and light-as-air watercolor-and-ink illustrations to cheerful effect. The five round-bellied ducklings from Duck Skates now head for a day at the beach with kite, float, towels and a cake in tow. Pictures vary in size and shape, immediately drawing readers into the whirlwind of activity on shore and in the surf. The taut text follows suit: 'Snippety snap! Quick claws pinch./ Two ducks yelp. Three ducks flinch.' A full-bleed page of aqua, punctuated with the bobbing and spinning ducks, suggests the sense of endless sea; further on, four horizontal scenes across one spread replicate the slowly shifting colors of sunset on the beach. Repeated rhymes add a comforting balance to the spirited doings. A breezy delight. Ages 3 — 5. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
