My husband came home with a present for me and my little boy a weeks or so ago...A book called Five Little Ducks. I had been singing this song to my little boy in the bath with his rubber ducks and when my husband saw it for only £3.00 he said he had to get it.
It's a 7 page hard cardboard book with progressively smaller pages to assist the story telling.
The book is based on the song "Five Little Ducks"
Five little ducks went swimming one day. Over the pond and far away.
Mamma duck said Quack! Quack! Quack! Quack!
But only four little ducks came back.
Four little ducks went swimming one day. Over the pond and far away.
...And so on till they all return.
When I was little I loved this song. The first part of the song used to really upset me but it was soon forgotten when they all return at the end.
The front cover is very attractive and would definitely draw your attention to it on a book shelf. The title "Five Little Ducks" is in shiny purple writing with a hand painted pictures of a Mummy duck and 5 colourful ducklings on a pond.
Every page is as colourful as the front cover
I'm sure no one would mind having to read this book over and over again and it's a nice, pleasant book/song and it's short.
I would recommend this book for babies from 3 months onwards.
I have yet to read any other Jemima Lumley books but this book has definitely inspired me to do so.
