Quack! Written in the International Language of Ducks! Reviews
Told in the International Language of Ducks, this is a simple story about a duck who rides a rocket to the moon, misses his friends, and parachutes back home. I usually show the cover and ask the children what do they think it is about. I read it with lots of expression and acting out (hold fingers up for count down, leaps and sink down for parachute scene), and the children usually join in. At the end of each part I ask the children what they think is going on. Talking about a story like this is a great way to build narrative skills. I pair this with Ivan Bates' "Five Little Ducks" or Eva Moore's "Lucky Ducklings" for a quacking up storytime. I also like to throw in this Dr. Seuss tongue twister from "Oh, Say Can You Say?":We have two ducks.One Blue. One Black.And when our blue duck goes "Quack-Quack"Our black duck quickly quack-quacks back.The quacks Blue quacks make her quite a quacker,But Black is a quicker quacker- backer.
Quack that goes to the moon and then comes back to her friends. Book is written in "duck" "Quack quacked, quacked to the moon." The kids can "read" this after hearing this because it is a bunch of quacking. They love it. I thought it was ok with cute illustrations.
What a great example of figuring out words in context! The story is told primarily in quacks, but a savvy reader will be able to figure out what's really going on. I think this will be an interactive storytime as the kids will need to tell me what's happening - to "translate," in effect.
I didn't think I would find a children's book that was dumber than Banana!, but amazingly I did. This is a book written mostly in duck language, which means 99% of the words are "quack". So stupid.
QUACK!! Tooo cute ^.^
New favorite book about ducks, or the letter Q. Can't wait to use it for storytime.
