One Duck is a heart-warming story of a duck that gets stuck in the muck…..and all the duck’s marsh friends that help him. The story engages children on lots of levels. Almost every child will have some experience of getting stuck so they can relate to the poor duck! They enjoy joining in with the phrases, ‘Help! Help! Who can help?!’ and chanting with the other animals, ‘We can! We can!’ Apart from learning numbers and counting, kids join in with the important message of helping others. The illustrations of the animals are bright and colourful and the way language is used to imitate animal sounds and actions are also significant reasons for why One Duck Stuck is so popular.
