This book is great in the classroom because it lets the students know how important it is to come together when there is a crisis. Its also great for teaching students about helping others. ( )

An engaging and charming true rescue story illustrated by a Christopher Award winner!

Early one morning, Mama Duck takes her babies for a walk. They follow safely behind her as they leave their pond, waddle through the park, and stop in the little sunlit town's parking lot for yummy breakfast.
But one by one, Mama's little ducklings get separated when they disappear into the slats of the town's storm drain. How three firemen and a pickup truck rush to their rescue makes for a vivid and exciting drama that children will return to over and over again.
Award-winning artist Nancy Carpenter and veteran author Eva Moore have created a delightful new classic with an inspiring environmental message.

It's nice that this is a true story, but I read it for the illustrations, which are gorgeous. I want that first lake scene framed on my wall.

Based on a true story this book tells the tale of how a few ducklings fell into a storm drain then to be rescued by helpful humans. With a happy ending this story is sure to delight young readers.

This is a charming story that brings nature and city life together brought on by an event that forces the two pairs to work together. One morning, a mother duck takes her brood of ducklings for a walk. As they were walking, the group of ducks came upon a storm drain. The mother duck easily navigated across the drain; though this became an obstacle for the ducklings. There was a person nearby whom noticed the emergency and began notifying emergency personnel to assist with the rescue. Civilians were alarmed by the commotion and began forming a rescue group. Once the ducklings were rescued, the mother joined her babies and resumed their stroll.
I find this to be a lovely tale that makes the reader reflect on their humanity. This tale is a great example of common people's willingness to offer their assistance in a moment of crisis; in this case, the helplessness of the ducklings. It frames the condition of the human spirit. ( )
