A quacking new classic, from Mem Fox and Judy Horacek, the best-selling team who brought you ‘Where is the Green Sheep?’.
An adorable book about a mother duck and her five little ducklings, who one by one fall off a bridge to the mother duck’s distress and confusion. It all turns out happily in the end of course. The apparent simplicity of the text and drawings belie what children will learn from this book – about numbers, addition and subtraction, while being completely charmed by the cutest yellow ducks this side of a bathtub.
