    One thought on “Click, Clack, Surprise!”

    1. I will continue to read everything in this series, and to recommend them, but this isn't the strongest. It's rather wordy (long) for the ending, which is telegraphed from near the beginning. It does play with language and would be fun to read aloud, and it's still funny, and I am grateful to my library for buying it!

    2. This is pretty mediocre, but that's not what bugs me about it. Why use the phrase "click, clack" if the typewriter doesn't even make an appearance?

    3. This was a fun and very creative read. I don't love some of the later books in this series but this one works. There is opportunity here to explore further learning with young readers about why what works for the other animals to get clean and spiffy, doesn't work for young duck (oily feathers, anyone?) The illustrations are fun and keep even very young ones intrigued. One little thing that the kiddos and I noticed was that donkey (mentioned early on cancelling a particular party game) isn't at [...]

    4. This is about duck's birthday party, but it is little duck who is the star of this book. The "walk on over to the Maple tree" line is repeated for the children to participate in reading aloud. Little duck wants to clean up as the other farm animals do, bit he ends up a mess. teaching application- read aloud for a fun interactive story. The repetition in the story lends to this technique.

    5. Another adorable installment by the wonderful team of Cronin and Lewin. Little Duck wants to look his best for his birthday party.

    6. Like the other books in this series, this one is just as funny and adorable. The descriptive animal sounds and motions are sure to make this an interactive read-a-long for young kids.

    7. good read-aloud, a lot of onomatopoeia. could get kids to imitate the sounds or movements of the animals when you're reading.

    8. Birthday Story Time. It's Baby Duck's birthday and the whole farm is invited to the party. When Baby Duck copies the other animals' party preparation, he finds himself in a mess.

    9. Little Chick gets ready for his birthday like all the other animals, he rub-a-dub-dubs and snips snips. Good for birthday story time, or farm story time.

    10. A fun book to read before going to the farm today. Alena enjoyed it very much. I want to see what else this author has written.

    11. This is a fun book for children to see that some things are not for everybody and everyone is a little bit different from another.Six + 1Traits: Voice, presentationDRA Level: 18Lexile: AD400L

    12. It's ducklings very first birthday! And everyone is preparing to celebrate. Only - duckling isn't quite sure HOW to celebrate. Never having had a birthday before makes this celebration a very interesting one!

    13. I have never personally been a devotee to the "click clack moo" phenomenon, but I can understand why these make great read-aloud books (especially with the goofiness of the animals' behavior combined with the silly sound words throughout).

    14. I always enjoy these titles and this is a fun one as all the animals are preparing for Little Duck's first birthday. Before gathering under the maple tree all the animals are taking their particular type of "bath". Fun and a little instructive too.

    15. Another great book in the Series. My kindergarteners in the library loved acting out all the ways little duck gets "clean".

    16. This is a cute story which builds suspense. What will the surprise be? It has very funny illustrations and provides lots of fun for grades K-2. I highly recommend this one.

    17. Little Duck is turning one and every animal on the farm is getting ready for the big party. Even Farmer Brown is in on it, baking and decorating a cake for the occasion. But problems arise when Little Duck decides to imitate the methods that the other animals use to primp for the party. All the guests are in for a very big surprise indeed!Cronin and Lewin have added another winner to the Click Clack oeuvre. All the familiar animals are present, and watching them clean up to attend the celebratio [...]
