Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 1—Jane loves her yellow plastic duck. When he falls off his perch and out the window into her brother's carriage, nobody notices. The next few hours hold sometimes-scary adventures for the bath toy—a romp through the park in the family dog's mouth, a swim with real ducks in the pond, getting splashed with mud, and being pushed around by a fish. Though poor Love-a-Duck has attempted all day to squeak at the other animals like any self-respecting rubber ducky should, he's unable to manage it. After his return to the tub, via the same dog, the contented toy is finally able to "Squeak, squeak!" Cheerful, bright illustrations help relate this humorous escapade. Call-and-response portions of the book will engage young listeners, who will laugh at the duck's attempts to get his voice just right.—Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI [Page 56].
