by Doreen Cronin; illustrated by Betsy Lewin
More farmyard antics with the Click, Clack, Moo gang. In this book, duck and friends are on a rescue mission, but readers don't find out exactly who is being rescue until the end. Each step in the mission involves increasing numbers (3 buckets piled high, 4 chickens standing by...)
This book is part of the hilarious Click, Clack, Moo series of books -- a series that kids can't get enough of!
This particular book did seem a little short--as if it's over before it really gets started--but if you're looking for a fun book to read aloud to preschoolers who are just learning numbers 1-10, this is a great pick, especially since each page includes a large numeral in addition to the text and illustration.
