I am disappointed that I made this purchase because my main goal was to teach the math skill, not just to have a cute book for our bookshelf. There are some good and bad things about the book.

Pros: The illustrations are adorable and younger children will be drawn to the book. I would say it's geared to children under 7. I like the concept of the story where a boy is taking care of 5 ducks and then they each bring home a friend so he needs double the items to take care of them (food, hay for a bed, etc). I also think it is great that at the end of the book there are two full pages for the parents that give a bunch of activities you can do with your child to reinforce the idea of doubling. On another positive note my sons loved it. I'm not saying they LEARNED from it, but rather that as a stand alone story they found it entertaining.

Cons: The prose reads a little awkwardly. It's not a rhimey book which is fine but it also doesn't sound that smooth to read aloud to a child as many great kid's books do. From a math perspective (which is why I purchased it) I was actually very disappointed. I don't think the book does a good job of bringing the concept of doubling down to the child's level. As the latter half of the book is dedicated to the care of the ducks once there is a double amount, the author should remind young children how many of each thing was needed beforehand. Pages later a small child isn't going to remember how much there was in the first place for the five ducks so I doubt this is going to help them understand that the number is "doubled" which is the point of the book.

For example, on page 22 the book shows the boy feeding all 10 ducks. the only thing it says on the page is "I need double the food, six sacks a day, to feed to my ten little ducks" and to the right their is a picture of 6 sacks of grain and a big number 6. The number 3 (that is doubled) is not mentioned at all on this page. The child would have to be able to remember back from page 10 that the boy fed 5 ducks with 3 bags. I would like to see the math equation also referenced even if it's just a small part of the picture like showing two separate groups of 3 adding up to 6.

I ordered another book about doubling and if you check my other reviews in a few days I'll let you know what I think of that one for teaching the math skill.

I bought this item to teach the concept of doubles to first grade students mainly because I like the way that math concepts are introduced in Stuart J Murphy books. However, I was not at all impressed with this book. The text does not clearly indicate doubles, and the story is a bit senseless. I decided not to use it for teaching purposes at all. I have many Stuart J Murphy books and would recommend many of them for instruction or for introducing a new topic depending upon the grade level knowledge of the student or students, but I cannot recommend this one AT ALL.

This book is great. I have borrowed it before, and now am glad to have my own copy. I wish I could afford to purchase Murphy's entire works, but I have to be content with piece by piece. Thank you Amazon for your quick shipping and ease of ordering.

This is the first book by Stuart Murphy that I have read to my granddaughter. She loves the counting on every page.
I use this book with my Kindergarten class when teaching about doubles. With small rubber ducks and picture cards for the things that get doubled, we have an interactive story/math lesson. The kids loved it and really learned their doubles to 10!
