Shortlisted for the Baby Book Award, Early Years Awards 2009

Complete with cleverly cut pages, all with rounded corners so that even the smallest toddler can handle this board book, it tells the story very simply of a duck who starts off with five ducklings but each day one disappears until they’ve all gone. But it all ends happily as one day they all come back together. Bright and colourful pages depicting ducklings of every size and colour will delight toddlers everywhere.


Five Little Ducks by Jason Chapman, Jemima Lumley, Francesca Stich

Five little ducks went swimming one day, Over the hills and far away. Mamma Duck said, QUACK! QUACK! QUACK! But only four little ducks came back. The well-loved counting rhyme is now brought to you in a fabulous split-page format. With a delightful foiled cover and bold, child-friendly illustrations by up-and-coming new illustrator, Jason Chapman, this new edition is perfect for sharing with little ones.
