Duck and a Book is a good book for children that are learning how to read. The book has about six pages. It tells a story about a duck going to the cow, the dog and the horse and telling them that he had a new book. When he reads the book to them,they all believe that they can read too. I like the color in the book and also the big pictures. This book will defenitly catch the eyes of a four or five year old. The story is not hard to understand and the pictures are big enough for a nursery to see ...more
This is a really cute 6 page book about duck sharing with his friends about his new book. He brings them all together and reads the books to them. The book is another real book called duck on a bike. I would not really gives this to my students to read because it is not a full story, but its still cute how excited they are about reading.

A great book to show even the youngest child that reading is one of the most fun activities as you meet new friends and have new adventures. Read to your children at least 20 minutes a day and remind the older ones they need to read at least that much everyday too!

I enjoyed reading with book with students because it talks to them about learning to love reading and reading is something to get excited about. I enjoyed the illustrations and have always enjoyed reading books by David Shannon.
This is a great book to encourage new readers. "If duck can read, so can I."
