Author: Mem Fox
Review: Joan Steinman
Well known children’s book author Mem Fox has created this light hearted picture story book for young children. Re spinning the Five Little Ducks Went Out One Day rhyme this story has a twist as each duck falls off the bridge; hence Ducks Away. Mother Duck is the last left on the bridge and what can she do? Written in rhyming form with a repetitive verse after each duck falls and with delightful; illustrations, this is a really lovely book to read to pre-schoolers. What a delightful way to end the day by reading this to your children at bedtime.
