Duck in a Truck: 11/01/09
We go through cycles in our night-time reading. Books that my son has out grown are now being rediscovered by my daughter. Among her current half dozen or so favorites is 0060286857?Duck in the Truck by Jez Alborough.
Duck is driving home from the farmers' market in his red truck. He doesn't see a large rock in the road. Hitting it sends his truck veering off the road into the mud. Duck needs to find a way of getting his truck back on the road
The story is told in easy rhymes and bright pictures. Sometimes the meter is a little weird to make the rhyming scheme work but Harriet's always laughing so hard at the illustrations of duck, frog and sheep stuck in the mud that she doesn't notice if I goof
The other Jez Alborough book Harriet has and likes is Tall

The first "How to draw" book read for any of the 3 Canadian Book Challenges. Cool.
Did Sean like it?

Sean LOVES the book. He's read it cover to cover about a dozen times.
