A modern classic for toddlers and preschoolers that you can either read or sing! This book is also perfect for repeated readings, since you can take time during a second read-through to talk about the illustrations (there are lots of animals to point out), count the ducklings, find Papa and Mama Duck, or just practice your quacking and other animal noises. Share it in storytimes about Farms, Family, Counting, Days of the Week, and Ducks!

Denise Fleming uses her unique paper mash technique to tell the story of these little ducks. the illustrations are full with layers of texture and color.

This adaptation of the children's song is illustrated with Denise Fleming's signature style. It not only includes numeracy skills (subtraction), but also incorporates the days of the week. A highlight is the informative section at the end about the Mallard Duck Family and Friends, which provides information about the animals depicted in the book. A great choice for toddlers.

Great read-aloud version of the 5 Little Ducks song. Covers numbers and days of the week. Beautiful illustrations, too.

My toddlers love this storytime favorite. Read it or sing it. I like to pair it with Raffi's song "6 Little Ducks" and the book, Duck Sock Hop by Jane Kohuth.
