A duck comes upon a lemonade stand and asks if he has any grapes - day after day - the same thing - The man always tells him no - even threatens to glue him to a tree. Until one day the man laughs and takes the duck to a store to buy him grapes - only to have the duck tell him he doesn't want them and that lemonade sounds good.

It is very cute the way it rhymes and the illustrations are very colorful and bright. A CD comes with the book and the first song on it is The Duck Song (includes 11 other songs)- which tells the same story in a sing-song voice. Very cute. You can also press a button on the cover and listen to the song. ( )

Okay, you know how children are attracted to repetitive and silly songs? Yes, I'm sure if you work with children or have children you know what I mean. Even as adults we can't escape these songs, because they get stuck in your head for days! The Duck Song by Bryant Oden does just that, and that's why I love it!

The illustrations in this book are so cute, they look like they are drawn by kids. Forrest Whaley was only 14 when he animated the video. I thought that was amazing! I especially love the different emotions that pass over the owner's face as he gets increasingly annoyed with the duck. Adorable! Emerging readers will be smitten with the illustrations, and will be able to pick up on the story quickly because of the repetition.

Ready for the best part? It comes with a CD! Yes my friends, this is a song. Your children can learn the song and then sing along with the pages in the book. What is even better is that the CD holds 11 other silly songs for kids, all of which are hilariously sweet! If you have children, work with children, or are just a big kid at heart, you need a copy of this book. ( )
