10 Little Rubber Ducks

Author/ Illustrator: Eric Carle
Publisher: HarperCollins
Published Date: 2005
Awards: Laura Ingalls Wilder Award
Genre: Nonfiction picture book
Audience: Gr. Pre-K-3

Overview: The story is based on a boat that dumped over bathtub toys. The rubber ducks fall overboard and they all float different ways with many different sea animals. There is a rubber duck squeak noise in the back of the book when you push a button. The story is simple, but Carle's painting and collage work is great.

Activity: Have your student create a collage as Eric Carle does, using lots of color and texture.
