Great book to use during writers workshop to use as mentor text to write about thinking and their feelings. ( )

This book has a lot of sensory detail, expression and voice. A great book to be used for mentor text. ( )

This is such a great book for writing, for writers to include what they're thinking and feeling. As well as a great book for expression and looking at punctuation and expression of the characters and how they act or feel.

39 months - reading this the first time I wasn't that into it... Just another silly farm animal book but then the kids park their bikes and the look on the animals faces made me crack a smile. Kids of course like this one for the colorful illustrations and silliness. ( )

This is a predictable story about a silly duck who decides to ride a bike past every animal on the farm. Some animals think it’s pretty neat that there is a duck on a bike, others think it is unsafe, or a waste of time, but when a bunch of kids leave their bikes out, the animals can’t resist. DUCK ON A BIKE comes to life with David Shannon’s wonderful use of imagery and very colorful, painted illustrations. Children could read along with the predictable parts in this book and say the animal sounds. A lesson in sequence could be taught, drawing out a map of each animal Duck rides past in order. This book is a great, goofy read-aloud! ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0439050235, Hardcover)

When Duck gets the zany idea to ride a bike one day, each animal on the farm has a reaction. "M-o-o-o," says Cow. But what she's really thinking is, "A duck on a bike? That's the silliest thing I've ever seen!" Pig and Pig say "Oink," thinking all the while, "Duck is such a show-off!" But it's not until a crew of kids shows up and leaves their bikes lying about that the true feelings of all the animals come to light, and for one brief, glorious moment, the farm is a mad, mad world of two-wheeling road hogs (and chickens and horses and goats). David Shannon, the creator of Caldecott Honor Book, No, David!, fills the pages of this barnyard romp with sun-soaked color, charming animals, and unusual perspectives. We see Cat, for example, looming belly-first in the foreground, with Duck merrily pedaling away in the distance. The story itself is nothing to write home about--No, David! is far snappier and more original--but younger kids may well enjoy the repetitive crescendo and the goofy finale. (Ages 4 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
