About this title

Synopsis:

A family spends an enjoyable afternoon racing ducks down the river.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K In this simple story two ducks are put into the water and go down a small stream. A family (parents and two children) run alongside and watch. The ducks go over some rapids, swim above sleeping fish, between swans, down a culvert, past a newspaper folded boat, around a whirlpool, over some stones, under a bridge, through fallen leaves . . .until the children scoop them up in the net to bring them ``back for another go.'' If readers don't look too closely at the title page, they may believe these to be live ducks, only to be surprised at the end when their toy stiffness is ap parent. The title page picture does, therefore, rob the story of what little suspense it could have had. The illus trations are pale watercolor wash oppo site the one line of text. The people are stiff and stick-like, the colors of the scenery unlikely (mauve and purple trees). The ducks are colored slightly, one pink, one blue, which does give some hint to their being toys. All in all, a rather dull book whose only redeem ing feature is the simple words of direc tion: over, under, around, and through. And even this has been done better elsewhere, particularly in Linda Ban chek's Snake In, Snake Out (Crowell, 1978). Patricia Homer, Lowville Academy, N.Y.
