Q is for Duck

Elting, M., & Folsom, M. (1980). Q is for duck: an alphabet guessing game. New York: Houghton Mifflin/Clarion Books.

This book is a fun alphabet book that uses letters and words to confuse and engage students. A is for Zoo because a zoo has animals.

Genre: Picturebook, Alphabet Book, Concept Book

Grades: K-4th

Audience: Parents, Teachers, Students

I would give this book a five. I loved the comedic illustrations and the whimsy of the book. Though it may confuse younger children, I believe that this book fosters critical thinking skills that are needed in learning and teaching.

Does the word “duck” actually start with the letter “Q”? Why do you think the author believes “duck” begins with “Q”?
