Book Review: Ducks in a Row

Ducks in a Row is a story by Lori Haskins Houran that is based on Jackie Urbanovic's unforgettable Max the Duck character. This I Can Read Level 1 book opens with Max relaxing at home with his friends. He realizes that everyone has something to do, and he doesn't. Max wants to feel needed, but no one wants his help with anything!

Then his three aunts stop by to visit before the first snowfall sends them flying south for the winter. Suddenly Max is in demand! Before long, he can hardly wait to get back to relaxing.

This book's colorful illustrations hilariously depict Max's emotions and frenetic movement throughout the story, and the cast of characters adds to the hilarity. This book's worth a look!
