PreSchool-Grade 1. Join the duck brothers?Brick, Brack, Thackery, and Little Zack Quack?on their adventure in New York City. This rhythmic counting book has a dilemma to solve as the three brothers make their way through the city on their quest to find their youngest sibling, who was lost in the hubbub of Grand Central Station. As they search, the ducks pick up "4 frantic commuters, 5 friendly taxi drivers, 6 smiling tour guides...." They look high (the top of the Statue of Liberty) and low (the subway) for Little Zack. Sometimes the most obvious answer can be the hardest to find?as demonstrated by the surprise ending. This book is filled with numbers and signs and can be used to increase readers' observation skills. The illustrations are in ink and watercolor and are reproduced in full-color in this delightful picture book that anyone who has ever missed a child or animal can appreciate.
