Reviewed by Pikasho Deka for Readers' Favorite

Raising animals on a farm has a charm of its own. Parents must instill a love of animals in children at a young age, as important as learning to read. What if your child can learn to read and develop an interest in animals simultaneously? Another fun and educational children's picture book, I Like Ducks, is part of the Wild Acres Farm series. Written by Carolyn Wild, it follows the lives of a flock of ducks living on the Wild Acres Farm throughout the year's four seasons. With simple sentences for readers to learn alongside pictures to provide context, sight words, and a helpful picture dictionary, it is meant for young readers to help develop an interest in both reading and animals.

It's a well-known fact that stimulating children's minds with pictures helps in drawing their attention, making it easier to teach them the basics of reading. This is why books such as I Like Ducks are crucial for children at the beginning of their learning-to-read phase. Carolyn Wild keeps things simple yet engaging for a wandering mind. Apart from providing the pictures and the reading texts alongside them, Wild also integrates scientific facts and titbits about Indian Runner ducks that are informative as well as entertaining. The story is short, with a wholesome feel that will leave you with a smile. A must-read for beginner readers.
