Chicken, Chicken, Duck!

Chicken, Chicken, Duck! by Nadia Krilanovich just came out last week and what a delightful new book for young readers.  Duck and his barnyard friends are up to something.  Set against a crisp white background the animals are the main focus and objects on each page.  The animals are labeled with either their names or the sounds they would make.   I think young readers will delight in reading these labels and love the interaction of the reading the animal sounds.  This will be a great book for a shared reading experience.  It's also going to be a great book to talk about questioning with.  What are the animals up to?, will be asked as the animals move around and stand on each other.  In the end, the readers find out what the animals have been up to and it's a great example of teamwork.
