'Five Little Ducks' is a charming counting song and storybook, complete with CD and downloadable app for music access, plus music notation and song lyrics for intergenerational sing-along fun. The pastel illustrations illustrate the counting song story line, as young children enthusiastically count, quack, and sing the song of a Mother Duck calling her ducklings to come back. Perfect for teaching counting skills and concepts to children ages 3-8,... [The] book reinforces the development of early learning skills, including physical, cognitive, and social and emotional learning. Added educational perks include a glossary and suggested guided reading activities... . Children will enjoy and respond to the fun game elements of the story, as well as the reassuring full circle theme in which the lost ducklings return and are found. ~ Midwest Book Review, Children's Book Watch, March 2016
