In this picture, Keith Baker introduces basic counting through seven ducks. Emphasis is placed on the number seven throughout the book as there are many ways to make number seven. An example would be five plus two equals seven or three plus four equals seven. Also, Baker incorporates rhyming scheme to make it fun to read.

At its core level, this book is too simple yet easy to follow along when learning to count numbers. I find it a little lacking in variety of other numbers but it's still appropriate for children to read and learn from the book. This book is suitable for children who are just learning how to count numbers and digits plus computing basic arithmetic. ( )

This book teaches counting and simple addition with ducklings. The numbers only go as high as 7, but it's an easy way for children to see how many ways numbers can be added to make 7. I also like that this book adds one way and then does it backwards to help kids understand that 6+1 and 1+6 still both equal 7. ( )

Quack and Count was enjoyable. Seven ducks were used to count to the number seven. It added numbers together that equaled seven. Like 4+3= 7 and 2+5=7. It was a rhyming story and the colors were very vibrant. This book could most definitely be used to teach Math to students in class. ( )

This book would be good for kindergarten or 1st grade. The concept of the book is counting. It focuses on the number 7 and the different number combinations that can equal 7. It also has a rhyming scheme and cute illustrations. I would have liked it better if it would have included numbers other than 7, however. ( )

I got a little confused and picked up this book by Keith Baker, because I thought it was one of the two books of his on the counting bibliography. It wasn't, but it should be! This book was delightful and included actual math concepts like addition and subtraction, along with rhythms. I really enjoyed this book and thought it was great fun.
