This book is about ten toy ducks who fall off a cargo ship. The story then visits where each toy duck has floated off to and the creatures they find in their path. Literature ( )
  bjacobsen15 | Oct 10, 2017 |
In this book, a box of ten rubber ducks are dropped into the ocean. Each rubber duck goes off in a different direction, and meets a different animal. What is noticeable by adults, but maybe not by children, is that the animals in the story actually live in the direction the rubber ducks are going. In the end, a rubber duck meets up with a really daily of ducks, and completes the family.
In this book, like many of his others, Eric Carle uses his craft to illustrate the pages. The pages are full of brightly colored pages that look almost like paper cut out and pasted. Another of Eric Carle's crafts is in most of his books, he tells his stories through animals. ( )

"Ducks overboard!" shouts the captain, as a giant wave washes a box of 10 little rubber ducks off his cargo ship and into the sea. The 10 little rubber ducks are swept away in various directions. One drifts west, where a friendly dolphin jumps over it. A whale sings to another. But, as the sun sets, the 10th little rubber duck is left all alone, bobbing helplessly on the big wide sea. Small readers and listeners will empathize with the little duck's plight -- and will rejoice at the heartwarming surprise ending. Review from Harper Collins Publishers

Summary:
This book is about the experiences of ten little duckies that fall off a steamboat on their way to the other countries.

Personal Reaction:
I thought this book was very colorful. It was a creative way to not only associate numbers, general directions, and cardinal directions, but it also introduced the various types of animals found in those locatons.

Classroom Extension Ideas:
1. We could study a globe and place little duckies in the places from the story.
2. We could use some of the animals from the book and locate their habitats and regions.
3. We could use a water tub, ten little duckies and animals and reenact the story. ( )

Ahoy! Here We Go
Around the World
with 10 Little Rubber Ducks

"Ducks overboard!" shouts the captain, as a giant wave washes a box of 10 little rubber ducks off his cargo ship and into the sea. The 10 little rubber ducks are swept away in various directions. One drifts west, where a friendly dolphin jumps over it. A whale sings to another. But, as the sun sets, the 10th little rubber duck is left all alone, bobbing helplessly on the big wide sea. Small readers and listeners will empathize with the little duck's plight -- and will rejoice at the heartwarming surprise ending.

In this poignant and funny story, illustrated with strikingly designed collages, Eric Carle also takes readers on an exciting voyage of discovery. Following the little ducks as they float to all parts of the globe, young explorers can see for themselves the meanings of directional words, and learn simple math concepts such as counting and the use of cardinal and ordinal numbers. Each creature the ducks meet is seen in its own habitat and behaves in a true-to-life manner, offering a very simple first view of biology and geography.

All aboard for a world of learning and fun!
