Our March book of the month: Farmer Duck, Martin Waddell and Helen Oxenbury
Our March book of the month is Farmer Duck by Martin Waddell, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury
– a tried and tested favourite.
This version is published as a dual language book in Polish and English, perfect for Leah, aged 4, whose mum is Polish. Farmer Duck is full of talking points and repeated phrases. A lazy farmer spends all day in bed eating chocolates, while poor duck does all the work. All day long, duck feeds the animals, collects eggs, saws firewood and does all the cooking and ironing while the farmer shouts ‘How goes the work?’ One day, the animals get together and decide enough is enough.
