Product Description
Product Details


PreS-Gr 1-This versatile title offers a unique package of interactive opportunities. Martin Waddell's winning tale (Candlewick, 1992) of a duck who is overworked by the lazy farmer and the farm animals who band together to help him and exact revenge on his master is complemented by Helen Oxenbury's humorous watercolor and pencil illustrations which have been moderately animated. The female narrator uses onomatopoeia to tell the story, and appropriate piano and banjo music complement the telling. The reverse side of the DVD contains a CD read-along with two readings of the story: one is identical to the DVD narration, and the other contains page-turn signals and is read at a slower pace, without as many sound effects to distract emerging readers. This delightful tale of community and perseverance will be useful for story times as well as independent viewing.- Kirsten Martindale, formerly Menomonie Public Library, WI Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

Martin Waddell and Helen Oxenbury work their storytelling magic in Farmer Duck. A duck does all the work for a lazy farmer until a rebellion by the other barnyard animals sets them all free. "By book's end, young readers will flap for joy right along with the endearing web-footed hero," said PW in a starred review. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
