1. Counting

2. 10 rubber ducks are made and shipped out to be sold, but their box fell off of the cargo ship. One by one they float to new destinations.

3. A - The illustrations are sweet. Eric Carle’s style is somewhat recognizable to children, which can be comforting. The story line is decent, I think this is better for younger children who are just starting to learn their numbers.

B- The strengths were based on number representation, and the repetition of certain lines. This can be positive and fun for young readers who begin to predict the story. I think this is appropriate for young children, pre-school age is probably the highest group I would present this to. The story line is lacking, kindergarten and up may not be engaged or even entertained.

C- The ducks all separated, but their new locations were not very detailed. Older children need more details, whereas younger children can benefit from new words like North or South. “The 4th duck drifts South. A flamingo stared at it” Kindergartners need more information then this.

4. Pre-school teachers can definitely tie this into a numbers lesson. It can also connect with talking about safety and safe places. The 10th duck drifts over to a Mama duck, and is clearly the safest one. Teachers could talk about wandering or “drifting” away, which leads to unfamiliar places.
