“10 Little Ducks”

Read “10 Little Ducks,” written by Eric Carle, the famed author of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and dozens of other books written for kids. The premise of the story comes from a true incident when a shipment of bath toys fell overboard into the ocean. The toys washed up on shore all over the world. Carle uses this idea as the basis of his story and he does all the illustrations in his now trademark method of paper collage. These pictures capture the magical adventure of the rubber ducks lost at sea as the story follows their ecounters with sea creatures and creatures who live near the sea. The ending is very tender and a surprise for all.
