Truck Full of Ducks by Ross Burach, illustrated by Ross Burach. 2018. Published by Scholastic Press.
Brief summary: The story begins right away on the end pages with ducks sitting, eating, and reading in an office when Bernie receives a phone call for a truck full of ducks. Everyone piles into a truck and is on their way when one of the ducks eats the directions. Bernie drives around town asking people if they called for a truck full of ducks. We hilariously learn about other trucks that are called and finally get to the right address as it starts to get dark.
Comments: Ross Burach’s humor in his books have my students laughing and joking even when I’m finished reading. His light and fast-moving duck story is no different. The story is told using dialogue. “Did you call for a truck full of ducks?” The two-page spreads are full of silliness with the cartoon illustrations, signs, and speech bubbles. I can’t wait to share this book next week with my kindergarteners and then share the book trailer below which is narrated by Ross Burach.
