10 Little Rubber Ducks

10 Little Rubber Ducks


The inspiration for Eric Carle's new book 10 Little Rubber Ducks came from the true story of a shipment of rubber ducks and other bathtub toys that fell overboard and washed up on shores all around the world. Illustrated in his painted tissue paper collage, 10 Little Rubber Ducks is told in simple, rhythmic language and bright, colorful pictures that capture the magical voyage of a group of rubber ducks lost at sea and their encounters with creatures who live in and around the ocean. A tender ending that includes a surprise will satisfy readers of all ages. (Reviews)
