Before opening the book, talk about what is shown on the cover. "What do you see?" "Do you think this is the mother duck?" "How many ducklings are in her family?" "What is flying beside the mother?"
Turn to the title page. Ask more questions.(This is called "dialogic reading, and not only is it fun to do but it also helps prepare children to read independently!) "Uh-oh, what is happening here?"
Turn the page. Read the text: EARLY ONE MORNING...Ask more questions. "What is the little duck doing?" "Do the brothers and sisters notice?"To the story time crowd I opened and shut my fingers as if they were duck bills and I said "quack, quack, quack".I invited the children to do this with me.Now there were thirty of us "quack, quack, quacking" and it was very noisy, which was the point.
Turn the page.Ask the children if they can see the little duck and the butterfly.(You will do this on every page.The children love finding the duck and the butterfly).The mother duck is swimming toward the nest, wondering what the matter is.All the little ducklings are still quacking.(There is no text, but you can observe this with the children).
Turn the page.Find the runaway duck (no butterfly on this page).Have the group "quack, quack, quack" again.Be the mother duck by saying, "I can't understand you with everyone talking at once."
And so forth.One mother came up to us after story time and thanked us for showing how to have fun with books.
