9780061964282: 10 Little Rubber Ducks (World of Eric Carle)

Get swept away with 10 little rubber ducks! A superb PB and audio CD from the creator of ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar‘.

Chuckedy-chuckedy-chuck
goes the rubber duck machine.
Out pop little yellow rubber ducks
one after the other…

A brand-new batch of rubber ducks is loaded on to a ship and sent off to be delivered to children everywhere. But when a storm strikes, 10 little ducks are tossed into the sea and swept away in 10 different directions – with some wonderfully unexpected adventures along the way.

Come ride the waves as legendary children's book author and illustrator, Eric Carle, explores numbers, directions, opposites, geography, animals and more in an extraordinary interactive picture book, beautifully illustrated with his unique collage-style art.

Review:

Reviews for the HB edition:

‘Carle's repetitively structured story works perfectly and shows that he has lost none of his touch in the 30 years since The Very Hungry Caterpillar was published.' The Guardian

Lovely review with picture taken from the book. 'It's the perfect-to-read-aloud text and gentle humour, combined with an emotionally satisfying – if unlikely – ending, and those glorious illustrations that will make it a bedtime favourite.' Time Out

'Children's author and illustrator, Carle explores numbers, geography, animals and more in an extraordinary interactive picture book in which rubber ducks are ship-wrecked and swept in all directions to amazing adventures.' The Sun

'Made of Carle's characteristic bold collage, cut from textured scraps of scraped and scrubbed paint, this bright and delightful story typically crams in lots of learn…It shows seas of different colours, suggesting different weather, has a touching ending and, as a bonus, a button at the end that makes a gentle, rubber-duck squeak.' Book of the week, The Sunday Times

With colourful creatures, numbers and a beautiful story, this is one book kids are sure to read again and again.' Grove Magazine

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2010. Board book. Book Condition: New. Eric Carle (illustrator). 7th ed.. 175 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ahoy! All aboard for a world of learning and fun! 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 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 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. A wonderful read-aloud for storytimes or one-on-one sharing. It s a definite 10, commented School Library Journal in a starred review. Beautifully composed illustrations, said Booklist. As sublimely simple and endearing as the playthings it portrays, agreed Publishers Weekly. This board book edition with sturdy pages is perfect to share with toddlers. Note that this edition does not include a squeaker at the end. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780061964282
