Five Little Ducks(Raffi songs to read), by Raffi

This is a book where the story is “sung”, rather than read. A story of a mama duck, whose ducks go out to play. With each new verse, she loses one duck. At the end of the story they are all reunited. Great interactive book!

A great story of a duck who decides not to migrate south for the winter, and soons finds out how long and cold winter can be. He moves into a cozy house and quickly becomes a pesky house guest. So, he leaves, and his former room mates realize how much they miss him.   Great illustrations and rhyming.

Over and under the other five.

Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
Mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack, quack.”
But only four little ducks came back.

Went out one day
Over the hill and far away
The sad mother duck said
“Quack, quack, quack.”
And all of the five little ducks came back.
