Ducks love to quack and so will your children as they follow Quack Along with Zack, Mack, and Jack. Jane Francis intends that children quack aloud as they read the book or have the book read to them. It won’t take much prodding for a parent to have their children join in the quacking. Jane’s style of writing is designed for younger children yet it teaches some major life lessons using many rhymes. Help your child learn the importance of sharing and making friends. Teach them to be cautious, but remind them that if friends stick together they can overcome any threat. Bullies tend to pick on the lonely and to leave groups alone. There is safety in numbers. This book will hold your child’s attention and make learning fun.
