This book is paper back in very good condition

Jill Eggleton’s name will be familiar to many teachers. A writer and researcher of early literacy, she is highly regarded by many for her expertise. In this slim volume of “ridiculous rhymes”, Eggleton gifts parents and teachers with fun, fairly short rhyming poems that will be enjoyed by young readers.

They rhymes are whimsical in nature, from a too-cool-for-school monkey to a king suffering from bubble trouble. The illustrations are lively and will definitely add to young readers’ delight in the poems.

Playing with language such as rhyming words is an important way for children to develop their early literacy skills. Books like Duck Feet are a great way to introduce children to the fun that can be had experimenting with rhyme and rhythm. A CD of the poems being read with helpful chimes to tell the reader when to turn the page, is included with the book.

I shared this book with the other new entrant teachers at my school within minutes of opening it. It is perfect for our “poem of the week”, which we share with children daily over the course of a week, so they can move from listeners to joiners/readers as they develop familiarity. I was just as excited to share the book with a class of 5 and 6 year olds. The children particularly enjoyed the poems ‘Clever Monkey’ and ‘Egg on My Be’ when I shared the book with them, and ‘Popcorn’ elicited lots of comments about home experiences with popcorn. ‘Growing’, a lament from a child about how slowly s/he grows, will strike a chord with many parents and educators who know children who just want to be bigger.

Perfect to be shared with very young children to 5-6 year olds, I recommend Duck Feet for anyone who enjoys having a chuckle with small people. The kids won’t even realise that they’re learning.
