MOST RECENT

This little duck basket never stood a chance of being sold, it was claimed as soon as it came in the front door πŸ¦† It makes a perfect companion (along with the dinosaur and kangaroo of course πŸ™Š) for the favourite book of the moment, 'Ducks Away'- it was even more exciting when @emma_wiggle read the book on TV last night πŸ’›πŸ˜€. I've got a basket, a magazine rack and a couple of Shirley Barber books to hopefully list later or early tomorrow. I'll post a preview in my stories soonβœŒοΈπŸ’« .

Just planning #familystorytime for this #Saturday at #CroydonLibrary πŸ¦† πŸ¦•

Sunday mornings are for β€˜readin’ She carries books around and plonks herself where ever she feels and flicks through the pages. Books are always accessible in our house. Each child has a bookshelf, but some books are placed a little higher πŸ˜‰ Listening to her point out familiar objects and reading to her toys brings makes me smile! πŸ“˜πŸ“™πŸ“—πŸ“• #raisingreaders #sundaymornings #reading #earlylearning #earlyliteracy #kidsbooks #childrensbooks #picturebooks #kidsbookstagram #turningpages #Spot #spotloveshisdad #erichill #puffinbooks #memfox #judyhoracek #ducksaway #scholasticbooks

Here's my little man and his first ever school library book! I love seeing what my kids choose when they're let loose in the library.😊 Caden told me he'd chosen a book we had already read, before pulling out Ducks Away. It's a lovely book, introducing kids to basic subtraction, with some counting too. The ducks are also showing a bit of independence from the mama duck, so it was actually quite an apt pick by my little preppie. πŸ˜„ I love Judy Horacek's illustrations in this book - they're bright, fresh and fun.

Ducks Away is written by #MemFox, illustrated by #judyhoracek @judyhoracek, published by #scholastic @scholastic_au.

So we have a huge, heated, undercover #hottub ... and we provide robes and pool towels if you reserve it when you book. But these guests went one better and supplied their own rubber duck! | #quackers #rubberduck #ducksaway #hottubtime #jacuzzi #visitdorset #bedandbreakfast #bandb #bnb #accommodation #guesthouse #bookdirect #comeandstay #welcome #dorset #england #traveltuesday

Hope everyone is getting to spend lots of time in this beautiful weather with their little ones, just like this mama duck and her ducklings πŸ’•I am obsessed with the beautiful illustrations by Judy Horacek in this book "Ducks Away"....simple, gorgeous and with minimal colours πŸ‘Œ We read this book a hundred times a day and my πŸ‘Ά loves to point out the ducklings who have fallen into the water, little webbed feet sticking out πŸ˜‚πŸ’•

Ducks Away πŸ“šWritten by Mem Fox πŸ“š Illustrated by Judy Horacek πŸ“šPublished by Scholastic Australia in 2016 πŸ“šπŸ“šπŸ“šI am a HUGE fan of anything at all by Mem Fox and I can't believe I didn't even know this book existed until today. The duo that brought you the classic Where Is The Green Sheep? teamed up again in this delightful little tale about a mama duck and her ducklings. It is a cute counting book for young children. Each duck waddles onto and the bridge one by one...and then falls off into the water one by one. It also introduces the concept of equations equal to five: 4+1, 3+2 etc. Count the ducks on the page with your little one and talk about the ducks in terms of positional language: on top of the bridge, underneath the bridge etc. Retell the story with your child, using rubber ducks or other toys to show the ducks stepping onto and then falling off the bridge. Use this experience to not only have fun with your bub, but to introduce new vocabulary used in the story, eg "peeked over the edge" and "tumbled into the water". With older children, you could also introduce mathematical concepts like counting to five and from five to zero, or simple addition and subtraction.
Teach your bub other counting rhymes, like Five Little Ducks, Five Little Speckled Frogs, Hickory Dickory Dock or One Two Buckle My Shoe. .

Ducks Away! By #memfox and @judyhoracek is a sweet little book which follows mother duck and her babies on a journey over the bridge until... ducks away!! My 1 year old and I have spent the morning watching two ducks and their four ducklings at the river and it was a nice way to follow it up at home. She has even learnt to "quack." πŸ˜πŸ¦† #childrensbooks #childrensliterature #kidsbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidslit #picturebook #ducks #ducksaway @scholastic_au

This was an activity we did yesterday for Literacy and Numeracy Week
β€’
Men Fox is one of my favourite authors and it makes me so happy to see Miss 3 enjoying her books β€’
β€’
We read the story then Miss 3 helped me recreate the story and then we did a counting activity using the ducks and a bridge just like in the book
