Terrific Tuesday

Duck to the Rescue by John Himmelman is another hilarious addition to this silly farm animal series.  First there were Chickens to the Rescue, then Pigs, next came Cows and now it's all up to Duck. Ernie the duck tries to take the pumpkins to market, then help little calf down, then babysit the chicks, and on it goes, but every time it's actually Ernie who needs rescuing.  But darn it, he tries!  
The artist used black Prismacolor pencils and watercolors to create the illustrations for this book.  They are cute cartoons and shows Ernie in trouble very well.
Preschoolers and Kindergarenters will love this series and find the silliness quite clever.  They will be able to help all the animals understand how their helping is really NOT helping. Children will love this wild ride through the week at the Greenstalk Farm.
