Format: Board book
As a huge fan of Tad Hills and his Duck and Goose characters, WHAT'S UP, DUCK? was an absolute delight!

At only twenty-two sturdy board pages, this is a perfect first reader, but it's also a great book to read with your toddler.

Along with the typical opposites of up, down and slow, fast, there are also my favorites -- clean, dirty and heavy, light.

The illustrations are what make this book a winner, and the absolute perfection of Duck and Goose are not to be missed.

Something about Duck and Goose really works. The stories are not complex, but the pictures are cute. They are great for little ones. We have a few of the books, but our favourite is "What's up Duck?".

HASH(0x9c573ed0) out of 5 stars Cute and clear Jan. 12 2008
By Julie Neal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
This colorful boardbook uses some charming drawings of four birds to illustrate the concept of opposites. There is a yellow duck, a gray duck, a blue songbird and a white goose. The words for the opposites are on each page.

Each scene shows the birds outside in the grass, doing opposite actions:
* First they stand forward, then backward.
* The gray duck screams while the blue bird whispers.
* The gray duck leaps for joy while the goose sheds a tear.
* The goose is close, the yellow duck stands far away.
* The yellow duck walks slowly while the gray runs quickly.
* The goose is clean, the yellow duck is muddy.
* The yellow duck barely lifts the heavy goose while the gray duck balances a light feather.
* The yellow duck has a butterfly on its head while the goose looks at one down on the ground.
* Finally, the goose is awake while the other three birds sleep.

HASH(0x9ce9fcc0) out of 5 stars So cute and educational! May 3 2008
By CJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
This book is absolutely adorable! If you've read anything else by Tad Hills, you know he has a great sense of humor and the illustrations in this book make our family laugh! They also so clearly demonstrate the opposite that my 2 year old reads this aloud to us, using the pictures as a guide. A wonderful starter book of opposites that is also really fun.

HASH(0x9ca121f8) out of 5 stars What's up Duck March 8 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book
I like this book. My girls love it and is a great way to teach opposites. It is very simple my 2 year old knows it by heart. I do add say for clean I say the "opposite" is dirty so they have that reference of the word opposite.

HASH(0x9ca64b7c) out of 5 stars Good book - not the best duck and goose Sept. 25 2011
By Robert Scofield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Board book Verified Purchase
Our duaghter loves the duck and goose books. This is a good one but not the best one - go for the feelings book. This is probably the 2nd best one of the series.
