I read this in English with Portuguese and Spanish translators for a library event. So many languages can slow a story down and make it hard to keep the kids' attention, but the repetition and the animal noises made for a great read-aloud despite the multilingual confusion. ( )

When a kind and hard-working duck nearly collapses from overwork while taking care of a farm because the owner is too lazy to do so, the rest of the animals get together and chase the farmer out of town

Farmer Duck is no ordinary duck. He cooks and cleans, tends the fields, and cares for the other animals on the farm. This is because the farm owner is too lazy to do these things himself. The selfish farmer that gets the duck to do all the work sits in bed eating chocolate. But one day the animals all see that duck is getting angry so they take matters into their own hands to help their overworked friend. ( )

The story would be a four star story but for one thing, it unnecessarily and bluntly equates fatness to laziness. ( )
