Duck, Duck, Porcupine! by Salina Yoon- OPTIONAL

Yoon, Salina. Duck, Duck, Porcupine!, PICTURE BOOK. Bloomsbury, 2016. $9.99. Two ducks and a porcupine have three adventures in this segmented book. In the first story, the friends figure out how to deal with a surprise rainstorm during their picnic. In the second, Big Duck has something important to remember, but just can’t figure out what it is. In the last story, the friends want to go camping but they have to wade through Big Duck’s long list of camping necessities first. This is the same author of the Penguin books (such as Penguin and Pinecone). I had high hopes for this book as well, but it was a little disjointed. The first chapter ends abruptly and I felt like it wasn’t necessary to have “chapters” at all. The pictures are the highlight as they are in other Yoon books that I have read. PRE-K, K-3- OPTIONAL.
