It’s a weird and wacky day on Huck’s farm because all the animals are making different sounds. The duck is clucking instead of quacking and the cow is meowing instead of mooing. Huck’s Duck Clucked is a rhyming and creative story of farm animals that have got their animal sounds all mixed up. Author Kelly Day has created an imaginative and silly story that children and parents will enjoy. Hopefully, parents will encourage their children to make the real animal sounds rather than the mixed up ones.
Huck’s Duck Clucked is a fun story that parents will enjoy reading with young children, or early readers will read it again and again. Author Kelly Day has written a wonderful, rhyming, silly story of animals who’ve forgotten what sound they should make. Perhaps children could act out the part of the animal and say the wrong sound and then tell us what the real sound should be. This book is a wonderful interactive story encouraging children to make sounds. Artwork by illustrator Beth Dupree helps to convey the story. I like how some illustrations fill the page and other pages have a couple of different drawings. I highly recommend this book for toddlers who are learning sounds and to encourage them to repeat the sounds. In the end, Huck learns a valuable lesson that if we understand another’s sounds, we can get along. If we listen and care about each other, we learn that we are all similar.
