“Chicken, Chicken, Duck! is such a fun way for new readers to learn their animals! Big, bright, and bold pictures are accompanied by large, simple text making this a great book for younger children to explore the sounds of a sheep, a goat, a llama, a horse, a pig, and many more animals. Be on the lookout for the duck, whose 'quack' comes at various unexpected moments throughout the tale!”
— Rebecca Moore, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA
