Great read-aloud for Toddler Storytime. Pairs well with Raffi's song "6 Little Ducks" and the book, 5 Little Ducks by Denise Fleming.
A really fun story to read alone or to a crowd. Duck Sock Hop is entertaining.
The kids and I enjoyed this silly dancing duck story. Pairs - (Ha Ha get it? pairs of socks? sorry) - well with Ducks Don't Wear Socks by John Nedwidek.
For the ducks in this whimsical, attention-grabbing picture book, the most exciting day of the week begins with a box. The sock box is overflowing with socks of all descriptions: striped, polka dotted, ruffled, lacy, and even star-spangled. Once the ducks select their socks and tug them onto their webbed feet, the music starts to play: "Warm up, wiggle, stretch your beak. Duck Sock Hop comes once a week." Together, the ducks bounce, boogie, flap, and flop with wild abandon until they're just as worn out as their socks...but not so worn out that they won't do it all again next week!

Swinging, rhythmic read-aloud. Interesting textures in the illustrations. Lacking in the extra smidge of substance that would make it a great book, but still a solid pick for reading aloud to toddlers. Especially if they like socks.
