    1. A mother duck finds ways to count her 12 ducklings to make sure that they are all there and that the mean wolf hasn’t taken any of her ducklings.The thing that stood out to me right off the bat when it comes to art is the actual ducklings. The book is about 12 baby ducks, and in most books there wouldn’t be much variation in the ducks. This book is completely different, though! All the ducks are very unique and they are all very different. The bodies are pretty similar, but the illustrator u [...]

    2. A wonderful addition to the duckling picture book genre, in How Do You Count a Dozen Ducklings, a mother duck struggles to keep track of her brood. The illustrator, Seung Ha Rew, manages to convey the distinct personality of each duckling in her big, unique multimedia illustrations. The rhyming lines, large font, and fairly limited vocabulary make this book a good choice for emerging readers, and great for read alouds as well. And inserted cleverly in the tale, a lesson in basic multiplication, [...]

    3. My five-year-old son picked this book out from our library this week. Because, you know, ducks. I love that the concepts of multiplication and division are introduced in a picture book. I don't expect children to understand them, but when the same children encounter multiplication and division later in life, the concepts will not be entirely new and foreign to them. There isn't much of a story. Until the wolf appears. Then everything gets interesting. The artwork is delightful. I love how differ [...]

    4. I thought "How Do You Count A Dozen Ducklings," was a great counting book. It incorporated counting to 12 as well as multiplication. The pictures in the book were eye catching, with think outlines around the ducklings. I also liked how each page had the ducklings visible to where a child could actually count along with the words. This would help young children learn to count by ones, twos, threes, fours, and sixes!

    5. This book has a lot of lessons to offer! The main lesson is showing how many times the number 12 can be divided up and grouped. This would be a great book for the first grade level. Kids could catch on very easily to the grouping and begin to have knowledge of multiplication and division. There is also another theme that comes into play when a wolf tries to eat the ducklings; it teaches that working together can defeat tough situations. I will definitely use this book in the future!

    6. This book is about a mother duck that one day lays twelve eggs and they all hatch at the same time. To make the ducklings easier to keep up with, the mother duck goes through many different strategies to divide them and keep them close all at the same time. This book is great for counting to twelve. It teaches many different ways to count to twelve like addition, multiplication, and division.

    7. An unexpected way to count to 12. Mama Duck tries to count her ducklings in rows of 2's, 3's, 4's, and 6's. When a hungry wolf comes along to have her ducklings for lunch, she learns the power of having 12 individual ducklings. Very well written and beautiful illustrations.

    8. This book is a perfect math read aloud for younger students. Students will love this book for math concepts.

    9. 12 ducklings is too many to count, so mama duck comes up with new and faster ways to count to 12 - by 2's, by 3's, by 4's, and by 6's.
