"Blue sky! Sunshine!

Head outside!

Let’s ride bikes!”

five ducks decide.

The five little ducks can’t wait to ride their bikes. Will they use their training wheels? No way! Teetering, swerving, tottering, curving, they ride full-steam until two ducks spy trees with ripe red apples on top. Those yummy apples will be perfect for pies and cakes, if only the ducks can reach them . . .

“Nakata’s sweet, soft watercolors perfectly suit the cozy mood.” --Time Out New York Kids


“The cheerful ink-and-watercolor artwork is as fresh and amusing as the short, rhyming verse. Fine for fall storytimes.” --Booklist
